Today at the Capitol, most committees have wrapped up their work.
But the Senate Judiciary Committee still has several bills to get through.
- Today they will consider one that extends human trafficking prevention training to hotel and motel staff. House Bill 1507 has a hearing at 9:00 am in the Fort Lincoln Room. It would grant hotel owners immunity to any charges if they’ve gone through the training.
- There’s another bill to study the issue of reporting and data practices when it comes to missing and murdered indigenous people. The hearing on HCR 3056 is at 9:45 am in the Fort Lincoln Room.
On the House floor — a vote is scheduled for a bill to create a Class C felony charge for damaging or vandalizing a piece of critical infrastructure. That would include power plants, pipelines and telephone poles to name a few.
The House will also consider providing $250,000 to the State Historical Society to relocate Pioneer Village from the State Fairgrounds in Minot to its new home in Burlington.
