ND Senate Passes Amended Anti-Mask Mandate Bill

(Bismarck, ND)  --  The North Dakota Senate is moving forward with an amended anti-mask mandate bill.  The House barely passed the bill, and a last minute amendment saved the measure.  The amendment eliminated restrictions on cities, counties, school boards, or businesses with mask mandates.  The anti-mask mandate would only affect statewide elected officials.  Supporters say the most important issue is personal freedom.  Those opposing the bill say someone has to protect public safety.
