Passes Senate, House
BISMARCK — The amount of money state employees, legislators included, are to be reimbursed for meal expenses has been increased by the North Dakota Legislature.
The Senate passed SB2124 43-4 and sent it to the House where it initially failed 31-59 but passed a reconsideration vote the following day 59-32. Because the House amended the bill it was sent back to the Senate which concurred by a vote of 26-21 on Thursday.
The changes are, for breakfast from $7 to $9; lunch from $10.50 to $14; and supper from $17.50 to $22.
