North Dakota House Passes Anti-Mask Mandate Bill

(Bismarck, ND)  --  Some North Dakota lawmakers want to make sure face covering requirements can't happen in the future.  The state House of Representatives narrowly approved a measure prohibiting mask mandates.  That includes state and local officials, schools and businesses.  Supporters of the bill believe masks haven't done much to slow the spread of the coronavirus.  The bill will now be moved over to the state Senate.  The passage comes three months after Governor Doug Burgum imposed a statewide mask mandate.
