Senate Appropriations Committee re-considering budget for the veterans home in Lisbon

Lisbon, ND (WDAY TV) - A follow-up to a story we brought you more than a week ago. The Senate Appropriations Committee is re-considering its budget for the Veterans' Home in Lisbon.

By: WDAY Staff Reports, WDAY

A sub-committee recommended money donated privately to the home should be used to fund programs for North Dakota Veterans. That would decrease the money the state budgets to the home.

The amended senate version says the donation should be used for programs, and not something the state should be responsible for. The donated money will be used for a wood working workshop, a gazebo, and landscaping that will add to the veteran’s quality of life.
