Ethics just got a major hit. The House committee threw out amendments by Klemin that made a horrific bill tolerable, then sent it out “do pass”. The House bill is bad. Only Boschee voted against passing.
The good bill – the Senate bill — version SB 2148 (Mathern) – is still pretty good! “Do Pass” out of committee. Appropriations review is this Monday. Please encourage Senators to advance this bill.
The bad bill – the House bill —version HB 1521, alternatively, is wildly unconstitutional. Anyone who believes in Constitutional law, or thinks legislators should listen to the people, or thinks ego-driven lawsuits are a waste of taxpayer money should be outraged by their behavior, no matter what they think of Article XIV.
WE NEED YOU NOW NORTH DAKOTA! Contact Senators to PASS SB 2148.
