State Legislators on Off- Year Issues

Posted: Updated:

While the next legislative session is more than a year away - convening again in January of 2015 - legislators are waiting to hear from constituents.

The Governmental Affairs Committee met today to bring community leaders up-to-date with Interim Legislative Management Committees.

The committees are made up of state legislators, similar to the committees formed during the legislative session.

The interim committees research specific topics and report findings in October.

Representative Dan Ruby says the meeting today was intended to inform, educate and seek input on topics ranging from education and health care to water and agriculture.

(Rep. Dan Ruby, (R) ND District 38) "Things definitely slow down legislatively after session but it's good for people to know that there are still work that's being done, still ideas that maybe weren't quite ready to be developed into legislation last session, they need more information, more study and that way, hopefully, we make a good decision on a piece of legislation."

Interim committee meetings are open to the public but vary in meeting schedules.

For more information, contact your district legislator.
