I am happy to report that ND Engrossed House Bill No. 1370 passed the ND House of Representatives this afternoon on a vote of 85-8! To say that the past 2 weeks has been a roller coaster ride is a major understatement. The next hurdle is to shepherd the bill through the ND Senate, so the journey continues for this important health legislation. To the many people in North Dakota who took time to contact their representatives, thank you for your help! To our friends in the media who worked with us to get the story told, thank you for your enlightening coverage! To the co-sponsors of the bill, thank you for your fearless leadership and wearing pink today on the House Floor – you sounded and looked great! To the ND House Human Services Committee, who initially voted 8-5 on a DO NOT PASS recommendation, and then reconvened and reconsidered the bill, and voted unanimously to recommend an amended bill and a DO PASS vote to the full house, our most sincere thanks for listening to your constituents and your hearts on this important health legislation. Finally, to all of the representatives who voted to pass this legislation in the House, now sending it to the ND Senate, your support to potentially save lives, save trauma, and save millions of healthcare dollars in North Dakota, was bold leadership and very much appreciated by people in North Dakota. The Engrossed House Bill No. 1370 can be found at http://www.legis.nd.gov/assembly/64-2015/documents/15-0766-03000.pdf?20150209154643. Stay tuned for Part 2 of the life of this bill. But for now, we are thanking God for the legislators’ wisdom, and his blessings and grace.
