North Dakota: Resolution would increase total signatures needed for ballot measure

North Dakota voters could decide if they want to require more signatures and a more statewide approach when citizens want to put issues up to statewide vote.

Rep. Al Carlson, R-Fargo, has introduced House Concurrent Resolution 3011, which would require any citizen initiated measure that would potentially cost more than $20 million, should it pass, to be placed on a general election ballot. Measures with less than a $20 million impact could still be put on a primary or general election ballot.
