Letter to the editor: Cramer forgets North Dakotans with health care vote
North Dakota’s lone U.S. representative, Kevin Cramer, R-N.D., let his constituents down this week with his health care vote. The bill almost entirely eliminates funding covering the 300,000 North Dakotans with pre-existing conditions. Included in that category are those who...

Report was slap in face to victims

Burgum’s veto of bill is tragic
The veto of a carbon monoxide bill last week by Gov. Doug Burgum was a tragic choice that will result in the injury and death of innocent North Dakota citizens that could otherwise have been prevented. All House Bill 1201 did was give the same protection to renters that homeowners...
