Legislative committee looks at possible initiated measure changes

It may be harder to get an initiated measure on the ballot in the coming years. A legislative committee met today to discuss proposed changes to North Dakota's law. 

That interim committee is made up of both law makers and appointed citizens. They both made recommendations on how they think the law should be changed and there was back and forth discussion on the topics.  It's is a result of recently passed initiated measures like Marsy's Law and medical marijuana. 

"The passage of the medical marijuana initiated measure ended up forcing the legislature to spend a lot of time rearranging some of that in a way that would make it actually possible for it to work in North Dakota," said committee chair William Neumann.

Some of the proposed changes include not allowing spending attached to initiated measures or out-of-state contributions. But a finalization on which recommendations won't happen any time soon.
