Overwhelming Response To Invest Legacy Fund In North Dakota
21 Oct 2020
JAMESTOWN, N.D. (NewsDakota.com) – The results of a statewide survey of North Dakota voters on the investment and use of the Legacy Fund show an overwhelming response to keep it in the state.
Research conducted by WPA Intelligence, a leading national public opinion research firm, asked state residents where they want to invest the seven billion dollar funds. In recent years, there’s been growing interest on how and where to invest the funding generated by taxes on oil and gas revenues.
Chris Wilson, CEO of WPA Intelligence, says overwhelming support was given to invest the Legacy Fund money in North Dakota, regardless of where the best investment opportunities may be. Some of the potential allocations locally include North Dakota companies and projects and certificates of deposit at the Bank of North Dakota.
