Plain Talk: Lawmaker Makes the Case for Using Legacy Fund to Abolish North Dakota’s Income Tax


State Rep. Craig Headland, a Republican from Montpelier and Chairman of the House Committee on Finance and Taxation, has introduced legislation to use earnings from North Dakota’s multi-billion dollar Legacy Fund to eliminate the income tax.

Both the personal and corporate taxes would be eliminated under his plan.

Also Dr. Joanne Luger, a Bismarck-based Dentist, speaks out in favor of legislation which would allow for dental therapists who could do some of the procedures full-on dentists can. The idea behind the legislation is to increase access to dental care.
