(Bismarck, ND) — North Dakota lawmakers are considering a bill that would allow National Guard and Reserves members to take leave from their jobs for training exercises. A Senate Committee is hearing the proposal, which would allow National Guard and Reserve service members to take time off of work for training exercises that happen during the work week. The Guard and Reserves have added Friday drill days, requiring service members to take off from work during regular business hours. The House passed the measure unanimously in late January.
