BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — North Dakota Sen. Kent Conrad says he doesn't have any plans yet about what he'll be doing when he leaves the Senate this year.

Conrad says he's still focused on getting new budget and farm legislation, and other work in Congress.

He says he's been approached about possibly teaching economics or government part-time at the University of North Dakota, George Washington University and Stanford.

Conrad got his bachelor's degree at Stanford and a master's in business administration at George Washington. He's donating his official papers to George Washington and the State Historical Society of North Dakota.

The 64-year-old Conrad is winding up 26 years in the Senate. He served as North Dakota's tax commissioner for six years before he was elected to the Senate in 1986.
