Rep. Roscoe Streyle, R-Minot, is right about one thing. When it comes to his House Bill 1181, which would change the way North Dakota fills vacant U.S. Senate seats, "the reason for this bill is very simple." But Streyle's wrong about the "very simple" reason he ascribes — namely, his and his party's supposedly deep desire to let North Dakota voters and only North Dakota voters choose a replacement U.S.
When considering whether to relax North Dakota's Sunshine Laws, lawmakers must ask themselves this question: Will the change leave North Dakota better off?

In other words, she was "in the arena." She was doing her part and serving her state; and for that, North Dakotans owe her their sincere thanks. But just as Target Corp.
You're a college student accused of sexual assault, and your disciplinary hearing at a North Dakota University System campus is under way. If you say nothing, that can be used against you.

If that happens, then the result will be both a credit to the department's rulemakers and a road map for enacting environmentally sensitive regulations.
