Group Wants Abortion Bills Put to Statewide Vote

Posted:

A Grand Forks group wants three abortion bills put to a statewide vote.

The Secretary of State's office received paperwork today for a referred measure on the bills Governor Dalrymple signed last week...

Al Jaeger's office has 5-7 business days to accept or reject the paperwork.

The sponsoring committee is a group of grand forks residents.

Their petition effort would stall laws from being enacted until North Dakota voters had a say on the abortion laws signed last week.

Each petition would need 13, 452 signatures.
