Fargo, ND (WDAY TV)-- The North Dakota Senate has approved 2 major bills this session.

One, to provide more law enforcement help in the oil patch.

The other, to raise money to defend any lawsuits that arise from new state laws imposing the nation's toughest abortion restrictions.

That one now goes to the House for consideration.

It's a 400-thousand dollar budget increase for the Attorney General's 2 year budget.

10-million dollars is approved for additional law enforcement in the oil patch, that's to address a skyrocketing crime rate.
