Bastiat Caucus Legislation
Below is the current Bastiat Caucus Legislative Agenda. We believe these pieces of legislation advance, to varying degrees, the general principles of the Caucus. We encourage grassroots supporters to engage with their legislators and respectfully ask for their support of this Agenda, either in full, or in part. Click on each bill number to be taken to a page with more information on each bill, as well as the latest actions, lobbying targets, bill text and additional information / frequently asked questions.
HOW TO TRACK BILLS:
1. Visit the Legislative Bill Tracking System on the official North Dakota Legislative website HERE. There, you must create a user ID and setup an account to track bills.
2. Then, you can track our official Bastiat Caucus list of legislation. You do not have to try and find all of our bills, we have created the list for you and are offering it as a 'shared list'. To track our list, use the following information: List Name: Bastiat Caucus / List Code: XEHhuYbO6M. NOTE: you can also search for and track any additional bills you wish that are not on the Bastiat Caucus list.
3. If you have a smartphone or tablet, we recommend that you also download the official North Dakota Legislative app titled 'ND Legislative Daily'. Simply search for the app in your app store and download it free of charge. You can then sync your app with your tracking lists and receive updates on your smartphone or tablet.
4. Please continue to check our Facebook & Twitter page for updates. We will do our best to keep you informed there. We will also keep this page updated, however, the Twitter & Facebook pages will be much more current.
NOTE: Bills that failed their respective chambers have been removed from the list. This list is ONLY tracking bills that currently have a chance of reaching the Governor's desk and being signed into law.
