A North Dakota lawmaker wants the public to know the costs of providing security for the governor, lieutenant governor and their families.

Republican Rep. Bill Devlin also wants better documentation of their travel.

Devlin's bill comes after questions from lawmakers and media about the level of personal security for Gov. Doug Burgum.

It also comes in the wake of a state audit last year that found the wealthy first-term GOP governor inappropriately used state aircraft for personal travel. That's something Burgum has denied.

Burgum spokesman Mike Nowatzki says that the governor had not seen the measure and likely would not comment.
