North Dakota Lawmakers are Racing to Pass Important Bills Before the 80 Day Limit is Reached

BISMARCK, N.D. – The North Dakota Legislature is scrambling to finish its work and leave at least a handful of days on the books before the constitutional 80-day limit.

Lawmakers had hoped to be finished in less than 75 days to give themselves a cushion that could be used in the future to address unforeseen problems.

Monday is Day 72.
