ND gov says no need for new mansion

BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) – North Dakota Gov. Jack Dalrymple sees no need for a new governor’s mansion but some lawmakers want to build him one.

The North Dakota House is slated to vote on a measure Wednesday that would authorize the construction of a new governor’s residence on the state Capitol grounds, along with a so-called executive conference center. The measure would authorize $3 million for the new dwelling and allow another $3 million from “private donations or other sources.”
