2021 Legislative Session Wrap Up

2021 SESSION
HIGHLIGHTS & SUMMARY

The 67th Legislative Assembly adjourned late on April 29, the 76th day of the legislative session. This leaves four days for the full legislative assembly to use during the interim when they meet before the next session convenes in 2023. The legislators will have to return in the interim for the purpose of redistricting and to address the Federal money that is allocated to North Dakota. They can return two different ways — by calling themselves back using the four days they saved, or the Governor may call them back. If the Governor calls them back, he has the authority to set the agenda of business to address.
