Why I’m bringing the postmaster general to ND
North Dakotans shouldn’t need to create community-wide Facebook groups to sort through stacks of mail that end up at the wrong address. But that’s exactly what folks in a south Fargo neighborhood had to do last year to get their mail -- anything from bills to employment forms,...

Time to move Legislature to annual sessions
North Dakota lawmakers met in special session last week and approved a $310 million budget fix that will bridge the gap between the Legislature's last session in 2015 and the coming session this January. It was just the 15th time in state history a special session has been convened...

ND budget plan provides bridge
It's fortunate that Doug Burgum has lots of experience in restorations. The Fargo businessman, who as the Republican nominee is North Dakota's presumptive next governor, will need all of his skills as an entrepreneur and real estate developer, whose specialty is resurrecting dilapidated...

Progress on pain relief
Minnesota's medical marijuana program just took a big step forward in allowing intractable pain as one of the authorized illnesses or conditions that can be treated. That will greatly expand eligibility for the program, and extend relief to a large number of suffering people around...

Ban ND cities from poaching each other’s firms
For the clearest view of the policy considerations sparked by FedEx’s move from Grand Forks to Fargo, skip Grand Forks and Fargo altogether. Instead, drive south on I-29 some 700 miles to Kansas City. Take the exit for either Kansas City, Kan., or Kansas City, Mo., because on both...

Kudos to UND for thinking outside the penalty box

Lawmakers should loosen North Dakota's Voter ID law
As North Dakota's Republican-controlled government has in effect admitted, North Dakota Democrats were right about the need for a special session. The governor rejected the Democrats' call earlier this year, but the state's deteriorating finances prompted him to change his mind. The...

Democrats who are assembled in Philadelphia for their national convention seem to be taking a page from last week's Republican National Convention in Cleveland: They are putting on smiley faces about unity, but there is none. Before the opening gavel, Democrats were dealing with an...
