Two referendum petitions unlikely to meet deadlines to North Dakota secretary of state

Bismarck Tribune - 25 days ago


Petitions for two proposed referendums in 2020 might be sunk, one of them perhaps partly due to conflicting deadline information from the state. Dickinson electrician Riley Kuntz is leading three referendum efforts on items passed in North Dakota's 2019 legislative session. The proposals seek to repeal a restriction limiting the state auditor in launching certain audits, a budget provision for a proposed Theodore Roosevelt presidential library and a bill shielding lawmakers' communications with state employees from open records.
