BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — A North Dakota Senate committee is mulling a resolution that would study the effects of climate change in the state.

Hazelton resident Jeff Magrum told lawmakers that a lot of money already has been spent worldwide studying climate change. Magrum says if the state wants to spend money, it should buy more snowplows to help clear North Dakota's roads.

Magrum says he's a construction worker and works outside in North Dakota's brutal winters. He says global warming is a good thing for him.

Valley City resident Sharon Buhr urged lawmakers to a study the effects of climate change and provide funding for it. She says people need to know what the impacts are to the state.
