If approved, it would add a new section to article X of the North Dakota Constitution. The full text of the measure is as follows: "SECTION 1. A new section to arti- cle X of the Constitution of North Dakota is created and enacted as fol- lows: 1. Thirty percent of total revenue derived from taxes on oil and gas pro- duction or extraction must be trans- ferred by the state treasurer to a spe- cial fund in the state treasury known as the legacy fund. The legislative assembly may transfer funds from any source into the legacy fund and such transfers become part of the principal of the legacy fund. 2. The principal and earnings of the legacy fund may not be expended until after June 30, 2017, and an expenditure of principal after that date requires a vote of at least two-thirds of- the members elected to each house of the legislative assembly. Not more than fifteen percent of the principal of the legacy fund may be expended dur- ing a biennium. 3. Statutory progPams, in existence as a result of legislation enacted through 2009, providing for impact grants, direct revenue allocations to political subdivisions, and deposits in the oil and gas research fund must remain in effect but the legislative assembly may adjust statutory alloca- tions for those purposes. The state investment board shall invest the principal of the North Dakota legacy fund. The state treasurer shall transfer earnings of the North Dakota legacy fund accruing after June 30, 2017, to the state general fund at the end of each biennium. SECTION 2. EFFECTIVE DATE. If approved by the voters, this meas- ure becomes effective for oil and gas produced after June 30, 2011." Voting "YES" means you approve the measure as stated above.

Analysis of Initiated Statutory Measure No. 2 Statutory Measure No. 2 was placed on the ballot by petitions circu- lated by a sponsoring committee.

Commissioner Arthaud was absent. Kasian moved to approve the min- utes from the August 3, 2010 regular meeting. Thompson seconded Others present during portions of the meeting were: Dean Rodne; Medora Stevenson; Bruce Chappell; Doug Pickle; Jay Brovold; Dave Jurgens; Pat Rummel; Medora Stevenson; Craig Kubas The board reviewed the contract between the county and CW engineer- ing for Fryburg firehall addition. Chris Wentz, with CW engineering was reached on speaker phone to join the review and answer questions. Kasian moved to approve the contract. Thompson seconded. Dean Rodne met with the board concerning the lagoon in Fryburg. The school owns the lagoon, but the access lines lie close to the streets. Since Fryburg is unincorporated, all streets and right-of-ways are dedicat- ed to Billings County. He informed the board that the school district is still try- ing to sell the school building in Fryburg and they are getting a new appraisal. The school board is inquir- ing whether the county wants to assume ownership and maintenance of the lagoon. At this point, Dean indi- cated that the school board didn't think anyone outside of the school is cur- rently hooked up to that sewer system. Kasian moved to turn down the offer. Thompson seconded. Medora Stevenson with Bowman County Extension Office requested that Billings County consider helping with the funding for year around weather radar from the Bowman Airport. It is currently used only four months out of the year. Thompson moved to budget $2,500 annually for this purpose. Kasian seconded. Discussion arose concerning the amount the county charges for gravel and scoria. Currently the price is set at $3.50 per yard and $75.00 per hour trucking. Recent crushing costs alone have been $3.95 and $4.19 per yard, which doesn include royalty payment. Kasian moved to increase the price per yard to $4.50. Thompson second- ed.
