  • BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — North Dakota's Board of Higher Education is debating its legislative budget proposals on Thursday, along with pay raises for its college presidents.
    The board has a new chancellor, Hamid Shirvani, and two new board members, Don Morton and Kathleen Neset.
    One of Shirvani's budget ideas would greatly expand the staff of the North Dakota university system's central office.
    Shirvani wants to hire a new internal auditor and a compliance officer by Sept. 1. And Shirvani wants the Legislature to approve more than $8 million in the next two years to hire 30 new staffers.
    The budget proposals also include $10 million in "energy impact" money for western North Dakota campuses and $10 million to expand the University of North Dakota's engineering school in the west.
