BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — The North Dakota House has approved a Senate bill that forbids local governments from imposing longer setbacks than the state’s rules for livestock feeding operations.

Representatives passed the amended bill on Monday. The legislation now goes to a conference committee.

Opponents say the legislation takes away local control for managing feedlots.

Backers say it will help the state’s livestock industry and crop producers who sell feed to the operations.
