Lawmakers Consider Annual Session

A growing number of lawmakers believe the North Dakota Legislature should meet annually instead of every two years.

They are considering legislation to hold a 20-day session in even-numbered years and 60-day session in odd-numbered years to deal with the state’s economic growth.

Lawmakers have debated holding annual sessions for years.

North Dakota is one of only four states including Montana, Nevada and Texas, where the Legislature doesn’t meet every year.
