JAMESTOWN, N.D. -- Mental health facilities across North Dakota have between 295 and 350 residential patient beds offering varying levels of care, according to Rosalie Etherington, superintendent of the North Dakota State Hospital.

ST. PAUL -- State Rep. Tim Kelly believes he and Sen. Scott Dibble could negotiate a long-term transportation plan in about an hour. Dibble, chair of the Senate's Transportation and Public Safety Committee, thinks Kelly is wrong: It would take them only half an hour. "I think we know roughly speaking which elements from each other's package we would accept and which ones we would reject," Dibble said. "We can figure out the differences fairly quickly."
