(Fargo, ND) -- North Dakota House Majority Leader Mike Lefor is responding to criticism from former Governor Ed Schafer that lawmakers are spending too much money from the Legacy Fund.
"The Legacy Fund was put together not to be so restrictive, but the Legacy Fund earnings go right into the general fund, and so we are taking a look at that and we're revisiting that in terms of how much should be back to Legacy principal," said Lefor.
Lefor also asked that anyone who might have concerns with Legacy Fund spending to "please visit with us" and to "give us a call". The Majority Leader made the comments while appearing on "What's on Your Mind" on AM 1100 The Flag.
