Legislation may do more harm than good

The Garrison Dam National Fish Hatchery’s annual operating budget is $667,492, but that funding is being threatened by proposed budget cuts in President Barrack Obama’s 2012 budget.
Rob Holm, manager of the Garrison Dam National Fish Hatchery, said early budget numbers could mean the Garrison Dam hatchery will lose more than $140,000 in funding a year and the hatchery in Valley City could lose around $10,000 a year.
