GRAND FORKS, N.D. (AP) -- A University of North Dakota study says the school's research activities had a smaller effect on the economy this year. After several years of steady growth, UND reported its research programs had a $202 million impact on the regional, state and local economy in fiscal year 2013.

That's down from $244 million in fiscal year 2012. UND officials cite changes in how the federal government appropriates funding for projects, and the general uncertainty over the federal budget the past few years as reasons for that decline.
