The 67th Legislative Session finished its work on April 29 of this year. Many good and bad bills were voted on during the four months of session. So, where did things land for North Dakota family values when all the dust settled?
I would characterize the session as a definite win for family and life values. Bills supporting life, educational choice, family, religious freedom, and similar values were passed and signed into law. I want to thank those legislators who voted for these bills, sometimes in the face of considerable opposition. By the same token, a number of bills antithetical to our biblical values were defeated. Of course, there were a few bills that we would have liked to see pass that didn’t, but then we can’t win everything we’d like to.
To give you an idea of how legislators voted on pro-life and pro-family bills, Family Policy Alliance of North Dakota has put together a scorecard on a few key bills. Look it over and see how your Senator and Representatives voted on these issues. They are at the Capitol to represent you and your values. Find out how they did this session fulfilling that important promise!
For North Dakota,
President and Executive Director
