State Funding Approved For Theodore Roosevelt Presidential Library and Museum
The money must be matched by $100 million in private funds
BISMARCK, ND — Gov. Doug Burgum is thanking state legislators after they voted to approve an endowment for the proposed Theodore Roosevelt Presidential Library and Museum.
He says it will lay the foundation for a world-class tourism destination in western North Dakota.
The House voted 76-16 after a nearly hour-long debate to use $50 million from the state treasury and loans from the state-owned Bank of North Dakota for the project.
The money must be matched by $100 million in private funds.
The Senate approved the measure Tuesday night.
It now goes to Burgum for his signature.
