Ethics Bill Progressing In North Dakota Legislature
The North Dakota Senate approved House Bill 1521 on Wednesday, April 17.
The bill would implement the state’s new ethics rules established by the voter’s passage of Measure 1 last year.
House Bill 1521 prohibits a lobbyist from giving, offering, soliciting, initiating, or facilitating a gift over $60 to a public official.
A lobbyist will also be required to file a report with the secretary of state if they spend more than $200 on lobbying.
The bill has been returned to the House for consideration before the end of the legislative session on April 26.
