North Dakota Legislature

Senate Democratic minority leader Mac Schneider of Grand Forks, right, and House Democratic minority leader Kenton Onstad of Parshall disuss proposed legislation that would direct 80 percent of the revenues from North Dakota's oil production tax back to the counties where the oil was produced Thursday, Jan. 17, 2013 in Bismarck, N.D.
