BISMARCK, N.D. (KFYR) - Problems that impact North Dakota don’t necessarily stop at the Canadian border.

One way to reach a consensus on issues such as moving freight across state and international borders and issues impacting tribes on both sides... is to talk. And Thursday, delegates from North and South Dakota, Minnesota and Manitoba met in Bismarck for the 22nd International Legislator’s Forum to do just that. Those who attended were optimistic that the solutions they discussed can be applied to their communities.

“We’re trying to get more action out of what we’ve been talking about, and we will find out a little bit more about resolutions and more about how we can put this to action,” said Larry Luick, Senator District 25.

“The relationships we’re forging and the collaborative conversations that we’ve had are going to inform policy in those areas in January when we, or at least in North Dakota when our legislator comes together again,” said State Representative Gretchen Dobervich.

Other issues of common concern include human trafficking, aquatic invasive species and emerging agricultural technologies.
