NDACo’s original purpose—legislative lobbying—remains a priority service today. NDACo’s reputation as a fair and forward-thinking representative of local government has earned respect among legislators and the media. Our legislative staff tracks major bills of interest to counties and alerts officials to major developments. During the session, we'll post our weekly video updates here. Below the video is a link to our Legislative Blog and other helpful resources.
Our primary resource for updates on legislative activity is our blog: ndcounties.blogspot.com.
There, you'll find videos, commentary, our popular Weekly Report, schedules of hearings, testimony you can read, and many other resources.
