BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - The chairman of a state conservation fund has stepped down.

The Bismarck Tribune reports (http://bit.ly/1Rw7ru8 ) that Wade Moser had served as the chairman of the 12-member North Dakota Outdoor Heritage Fund board since it was established in 2013.

Moser says he’s stepping down as chairman because “one person shouldn’t be in charge the whole time.”

The board elected vice-chair Jim Melchior to a one-year term as chairman and voted board member Jon Godfread to a one-year term as vice-chair.

The fund gets a percentage of oil and gas production taxes. The goal is to restore land affected by energy production and to develop such things as fish and wildlife habitat and outdoor recreation areas.
