     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota's Transportation Department has finalized a statewide transportation improvement program for the next four years.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Gov. Doug Burgum learned of the North Dakota tax commissioner's recent drunken driving arrest more than two weeks before it was publicly disclosed. Spokesman Mike Nowatzki said Wednesday that Burgum learned within days of Tax Commissioner Ryan Rauschenberger's September 30th arrest. Rauschenberger disclosed it on October 20th.   
 
     Nowatzki says Rauschenberger is an "independently elected official" and it was up to him when to disclose the arrest. Nowatzki says the case was filed on October 6th and became a record accessible to the public at that time.
 
     Democratic-NPL executive director Scott McNeil in a statement criticized Burgum for "withholding" the news.
 
     The timing issue surfaced as part of emails and text messages that political blogger and former Democratic state Sen. Tyler Axness obtained through an open records request.

     MOORHEAD, Minn. (AP) - A National Transportation Safety Board report says witnesses told investigators a vintage airplane that crashed last summer was obviously in distress when it went down and killed the pilot near the Moorhead airport.
 
     Mark Yaggie, of Breckenridge, the only person onboard died when the T-28 military training plane crashed July 2. KFGO reports Yaggie was headed from Fargo, North Dakota to Pelican Rapids when he asked air traffic controllers to be diverted to Moorhead. One witness said there was a "terrible racket" like a gearbox or engine was failing. The plane struck a light pole near an Interstate 94 weigh station before crashing into a field.
