UPDATE: For some reason, the House adjourned early today. Because of this, they didn’t vote on SB 2060. This will give you another day to contact your legislators.
Last Friday we reported that the House Transportation Committee had given Senate Bill 2060 a 9-4 Do Not Pass recommendation. This was good news. As you’re aware, this bill would make North Dakota’s seat belt law for adults even more stringent by changing the law from secondary enforcement to primary enforcement— meaning you could be pulled over for simply not wearing your seat belt.
From passing the Senate 24-23 — after having a do-over vote — to one Senator comparing North Dakotans to children, SB 2060 has had an interesting road. The bill is on the calendar in the House today for a vote. The session starts at 1pm. We must act now! If you haven’t already, now is the time to contact your representative and ask them to vote red on SB 2060.

Do we really need the Almighty State to protect us from ourselves? We don’t believe so. Our hope is that you will contact your legislators and ask them to oppose this bill. We need to reduce the power of the Nanny-state, not expand it.
