It's the North Dakota Legislature's turn to establish a starting point for state government's next two-year budget....

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - It's the North Dakota Legislature's turn to establish a starting point for state government's next two-year budget. Members of the North Dakota House and Senate's appropriations committees are meeting this afternoon. The committees will estimate the state's tax collections for the next two years, largely by attempting to predict what the price of oil may do during that time.

    Gov. Doug Burgum has proposed a $14.3 billion spending plan. But oil prices have slid in recent weeks and that could have the Legislature setting its 2019-2020 budget plan well below the governor's request. Burgum's budget plan and a forecast by the Legislature's own economic consultancy both expect oil prices to rise. The governor doesn't control the state's checkbook. It's the Legislature that decides how much to spend on state government.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota's House has unanimously approved a bill that makes it legal to leave a vehicle idling while no one is in it. Representatives endorsed the measure, 68-25 on Tuesday. It now moves to the North Dakota Senate for additional review. North Dakotans routinely warm up their vehicles in the winter without being in them, ignoring a potential $1,500 state fine and 30 days in jail.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - The state of North Dakota is asking a federal judge to dismiss a lawsuit filed by a Native American tribe over the state's voter identification requirements.

    A U.S. Supreme Court ruling in October allowed the state to continue requiring street addresses on voter IDs, as opposed to addresses such as post office boxes that many Native Americans rely on. The lawsuit filed by the Spirit Lake Sioux on behalf of itself and six tribal members seeks to have the residential address requirement ruled unconstitutional as it applies to tribal voters.

    The attorney general's office wants the lawsuit dismissed on several grounds, including that tribal members named in the complaint weren't impeded from voting on Election Day. They and the state reached a deal days before the election enabling them to vote.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota wildlife officials early Tuesday killed a mountain lion that wandered into an area of the state's capital city just a few blocks from downtown. Lion sightings in the state's major cities are rare. Officials believe the young male killed Tuesday originated in the western badlands, was traveling along the Missouri River in search of new territory and possibly followed a deer into Bismarck, looking for a meal.

     HELENA, Mont. (AP) - Justice Department attorneys and the Canadian company behind the proposed Keystone XL oil pipeline say the U.S. government shutdown shouldn't delay a court hearing on a judge's decision to halt construction. Justice Department attorney Bridget McNeil said in a court filing Monday that federal attorneys' participation in the hearing next Monday in U.S. District Court in Great Falls isn't necessary.
