ND Legislature Wants Limits On Executive Orders

(Bismarck, ND) — The North Dakota Legislature is calling more oversight of executive orders and declarations by the governor. A new bill would limit emergency or disaster declarations to 30 days. Any extension would require a special session of the Legislature. Governor Doug Burgum filed around 45 executive orders in 2020, most relating to COVID-19 and efforts to limit the virus’s spread. Republican Senator Janne Myrdal is sponsoring the legislation and says the one-size-fits-all approach of executive orders doesn’t always work.
