States of the Union: North Dakota

Thursday, July 31, 2008

Find out which issues matters most to voters in the Peace Garden State and how rising prices for food are affecting the nation’s leading producer of hard red spring wheat. Also: whether the presence of oil in the Western half of the state is generating more interest as oil prices rise. Dale Wetzel is state Capitol reporter for The Associated Press in Bismarck, N.D.

States of the Union fact of the week: North Dakota has the nation’s only state-owned bank and its only state-owned flour mill. Both businesses were approved by the ND Legislature in 1919 to satisfy farmers’ needs for credit and grain marketing.
