BISMARCK, North Dakota — State Treasurer Kelly Schmidt says a record $112 million deposit will be put in North Dakota's oil tax savings account.
Schmidt says this month's transfer brings the balance of the account to about $2.2 billion.
She says the monthly deposits have ranged from $32 million to $93 million until this month.
The Legacy Fund gets 30 percent of the state's oil tax collections. The money can't be touched before 2017 and it would still take a two-thirds vote of the Legislature for the state to dip into the fund.
North Dakota voters approved the fund in 2010. It received its first deposit of $34.3 million in September 2011.
The fund has been growing faster than anticipated because of rising North Dakota oil production and high prices.
