North Dakota Votes to Create an Ethics Commission
North Dakota Voters passed a constitutional measure to establish an ethics commission.
Initiated Constitutional Measure 1 addresses the transparency of funding sources, lobbyists, conflicts of interests, and the establishment of an ethics commission.
The measure further restricts lobbyists ability to give gifts and campaign contributions.
The legislative assembly is directed to pass laws that provide electronically accessible public disclosure of funding that attempts to influence state-wide elections and ballot measures.
