  • BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — A Grand Forks state senator whose district includes the University of North Dakota says he's dismayed by the findings of an audit on student fee spending.
    The audit examined how some fees collected by North Dakota State University and the University of North Dakota are being used.
    It found some fee money is being spent for first-class plane tickets, furniture and other items that aren't related to the purpose of the fees.
    Other fees are being used to build up large contingency funds.
    Grand Forks Sen. Mac Schneider pushed legislation last year to require North Dakota's public colleges to list the fees they collect and how they are spent.
    Schneider says the Legislature could take up the issue of questionable student fee spending if the Board of Higher Education doesn't.
