BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — North Dakota’s Republican-led House has defeated a proposal to make it more difficult for citizen-led initiatives that amend the state constitution.

The House voted unanimously Friday to kill the Senate resolution to raise to 60 percent the voting margin necessary to approve a constitutional amendment, instead of a majority.

GOP majority leaders sponsored the measure.

The move was inspired in part by a string of successful ballot measures funded largely by out-of-state interests.
