FUNDING:

House Bill 1321 Income Tax Credit for Nonpublic or Home Education Position: Opposed Outcome: Failed House 40-52 - Win This bill is a voucher bill that provides a tax credit to any individuals who choose to send their children to a private school or home school. NDU strongly believes that all public monies that are raised for public education should be spent on public education. Due to the importance of this bill for NDU and its members, this vote is weighted in the legislators’ overall scores.

House Bill 1384 Income Tax Credit for Charitable Contributions to Private Institutions of Education Position: Opposed Outcome: Passed House 64-28, Passed Senate 29-17, Amended and Passed Senate 35-12, Passed House 75-16 - Loss HB 1384 raised the tax credit for any individual that makes charitable contributions to private institutions of education from $2,000 to $2,500 per year. This includes primary, secondary, and higher education private institutions. An amendment in the Senate limited this tax credit to only be applicable for tax years 2019 and 2020. For the purpose of this scorecard, the final votes in both chambers have been counted.

Senate Bill 2142 Establishment of Education Savings Accounts/Vouchers Position: Opposed Outcome: Failed Senate 3-42 - Win This bill would have used public tax dollars for non-public education. Similar to a bill introduced last session, NDU President Nick Archuleta testified vehemently against the bill and it failed by an overwhelming margin.

Senate Bill 2362 Repayment to the Common Schools Trust Fund Position: Supported Amendment Outcome: Passed Senate 44-3, House 85-0 – Win During the middle of the legislative session news broke that $137 million dollars had been misallocated from the Common Schools Trust Fund over the past decade. Simply, a certain percentage of oil extraction taxes were supposed to go into the Fund, but did not. The amendment to SB 2362 repaid the principal into the Fund as a one-time payment of over $64 million dollars.

HIGHER ED:

Senate Bill 2320 Free Speech at Higher Education Institutions Position: Supported amendment Outcome: Passed – Win North Dakota United members were perplexed with this bill, which at first glance seemed to promote a positive, democratic ideal: allow anyone on a higher education campus to have their own ideas, and express them freely. However, it had darker undertones of regulating what a professor could say during class time, even making them vulnerable to potential lawsuits if they expressed their ideas. Thankfully, Senator Erin Oban (D-35) was able to offer and pass amendments that removed the concerning language. Up through the end of the session more attempts were made to amend this bill, but they ultimately failed, leaving a bill that basically promotes freedom of speech and freedom of assembly on college campuses. This vote is not included in the scorecard, as the vote on the Senate floor amendments were made by voice and there is no record of each Senator’s individual vote.

House Concurrent Resolution 3016 Removes References to Names, Locations, and Missions of Higher Education Institutions Position: Opposed Outcome: Passed House 56-32, Failed Senate 3-41 - Win HCR 3016 represented the ominous notion of removing references to North Dakota’s higher education institutions from the state constitution. Allowing this resolution would have given the legislature the authority to close any or all of the higher ed campuses across the state, issuing a terrible effect on not only the surrounding community. These colleges and universities are training grounds for the next generation, which pull needed young people into communities of all sizes, and also act as valuable economic engines.

RIGHTS: House Bill 1463 Collective Bargaining for Law Enforcement Officers and Paid Full-time Firefighters Position: Supported Outcome: Failed House 23-64 - Loss HB 1463 would have provided collective-bargaining rights for law-enforcement officers and full-time firefighters. The parties would negotiate in good faith regarding the terms and conditions of employment and employer-employee relations. Law enforcement and full-time firefighters would not have been able to strike under the agreement.

SAFETY: House Bill 1206 Guns in Public Places Position: Opposed Outcome: Passed House 84-9, Failed Senate 11-36 - Win At the outset of the legislative session, HB 1206 created a Class 1 “exempt” license for concealed carry of firearms in public places. That bill was defeated in the Senate, but was later amended into SB 2172, where it was again thankfully defeated for good.

House Bill 1332 Armed First Responders Position: Opposed Outcome: Passed House 77-15, Passed Senate 31-14 - Loss HB 1332 allows schools to develop a plan, which must be approved by local law enforcement and the Department of Homeland Security, to be submitted to the North Dakota Department of Public Instruction, for an “armed first responder,” who cannot be anyone with direct supervision of students. There are rigorous training requirements, and the bill was amended to keep these plans confidential. North Dakota United worked diligently to make sure that this armed first responder bill has language in it that says that when a teacher or an administrator is in a school building in charge of children, they cannot be that armed first responder. Due to the importance of this bill for NDU and its members, this vote is weighted in the legislators’ overall scores.

Senate Bill 2052 School Safety Plans Position: Supported Outcome: Passed Senate 43-3, Passed House 55-31 – Win SB 2052 relates to school district safety plans and is a testament to the bipartisan commitment within the Legislature to keep our kids safe when they are at school. It allows schools, after they’ve developed a safety plan, to raise mill levies in their community to enact that plan. For example, the additional funds could but used for cameras, entrances, or whatever security and safety needs the schools have.

Senate Bill 2172 Guns in Public Places Position: Opposed Outcome: Passed House 70-23, Failed Senate 4-43 - Win At the outset of the legislative session, HB 1206 created a Class 1 “exempt” license for concealed carry of firearms in public places. That bill was defeated in the Senate, but then amended onto SB 2172. In this iteration, it sought to allow individuals to attain a Class 1 “exempt” license and carry their guns into schools, universities, churches, public places, etc. Thankfully, this terrible idea was again defeated in the Senate. Due to the importance of this bill for NDU and its members, this vote is weighted in the legislators’ overall scores.

SALARY/BENEFITS:

House Bill 1057 State Worker Pay Raise Position: Supported Outcome: Failed House 26-66 – Loss This bill would have increased state employee compensation by $300 per month, or $3,600 in the first year, the same amount as SB 2128. The main difference between the two bills is that in HB 1057 the percentage-based raise would have been distributed based on merit. State workers desperately deserved a raise, and NDU supported this bill.

House Bill 1419 Defined Contribution Plan Study Position: Opposed Outcome: Passed House 89-2, Failed Senate 6-41 - Win HB 1419 would have changed the State pension plan into defined contribution, replacing the current defined benefit plan. North Dakota United strongly prefers the defined benefit plan as it ensures our public employee members know ahead of time the exact benefits they will receive. The bill was amended into a study in the House after NDU President Nick Archuleta and PERS testified on the grave outcomes of the language of the bill. It is such a horrible idea that even the possibility of a study was killed in the Senate. This vote is not included in this scorecard, as a vote on a study does not necessarily indicate the legislator’s intent on this specific matter.

House Bill 1470 Family Leave for State Employees Position: Supported Outcome: Passed House 85-6, Passed Senate 46-0 - Win HB 1470 expanded the family leave program for state employees to provide for leave in the event of the death of an employee’s child. It also included a study to look at transitioning annual leave and sick leave into a combined paid time off system.

Senate Bill 2015 State Employee Raises Position: Supported Outcome: Passed - Win After living and working through a biennium without any raise or compensation adjustment, permanent state employees will now receive of a 2% increase in the first year of the biennium, with a minimum of $120 per month, and a maximum of $200 per month. Close to 80% (79.5 or 5,504) of employees will benefit from the minimum, while only 46 people will see their increase lowered by the max. Those statistics only include state agencies, and do not reflect higher education. In the second year of the biennium, employees will receive a 2.5% increase, with no minimum or maximum amount. The vote on SB 2015, the OMB budget bill, is not included in the scorecard, as a vote on a budget bill does not reflect the legislator’s intent on this specific matter.

Senate Bill 2046 Ends Employee Health Insurance Credit Position: Opposed Outcome: Passed Senate 39-8, Passed House 64-27 - Loss This bill ended the Employee Health Insurance Credit by not covering any public employees hired after 2019. North Dakota United opposes degrading benefits for all of our members – present, past, and future.

Senate Bill 2047 Decreases the Multiplier for New Hires Position: Opposed Outcome: Passed Senate 37-10, Passed House 71-20 - Loss SB 2047 decreased the multiplier of the PERS plan from 2.0 to 1.75. The multiplier is used to calculate a public employee’s benefit upon retirement, multiplying their years of service by that number to determine what percentage of their salary they will receive. Again, this bill degrades a current benefit offered to our members, and is one NDU stood firmly against.

Senate Bill 2048 Increases Employer and Employee Contributions to the PERS Retirement Plan Position: Supported Outcome: Passed Senate 45-2, Amended into Study in House, Passed House 76-15, Failed Senate 0-46 Loss SB 2048 would have increased employee and employer contributions into NDPERS by 1 percent each, which is an idea ND United has supported over multiple sessions. This increase would have put the NDPERS defined-benefit pension plan for public employees back on a trajectory to being fully funded. It was turned into a study in the House, but its failure in the Senate has only “further delay(ed) a solution to the PERS funding crisis,” as stated by Representative Pamela Anderson (D-41) during debate on the House floor. For the purpose of this scorecard, only the original vote in the Senate has been counted.

Senate Bill 2128 State Worker Pay Raise Position: Supported Outcome: Failed Senate 12-34 - Loss SB 2128 is a bill that would have increased state worker pay by $300 per month in the first year of the coming biennium (in other words, $3,600 per year) and then a 3 percent raise in the second year. Additionally, this bill would have shielded public workers from having to pay increased costs for their health insurance, which would negate any gains made in their pay.

Senate Bill 2132 Single Coverage Health Insurance Position: Opposed Outcome: Failed Senate 1-45 - Win Introduced by Senator Oley Larsen (R-3), SB 2132 would have reduced the family health insurance coverage for state employees to single coverage for the employee only. It received a unanimous “do not pass” recommendation in committee and was almost unanimously defeated in the Senate.

TEACHING & LEARNING:

House Bill 1208 Teacher Reimbursement Program Position: Supported Outcome: Failed House 20-72 - Loss HB 1432 would have allowed teachers to receive up to $200 per year in reimbursement for school supplies they purchase out of pocket. This bi-partisan bill would have alleviated the great out of pocket expenses teachers incur in order to provide the best academic experiences for their students.

House Bill 1228 Local Control of Education Position: Opposed Outcome: Failed House 38-54 - Win This bill sought to add a new section to the North Dakota Century Code, giving school districts sole control over “the supervision, development and instruction of kindergarten through grade twelve students including course content standards, required instruction, instructional time, assessments, attendance, and graduation requirement for students residing in the district …” as well as “the negotiating, employment, termination, licensing, and credentialing of teachers and ancillary staff.” In short, without any codes, laws, or regulations in place a school would lose its accreditation, causing students to matriculate with a diploma that essentially means nothing outside of that particular school district.

House Bill 1287 Alternative Teacher Certification Position: Opposed Outcome: Passed House 72-19, Passed Senate 37-10 - Loss This bill amends the part of Century Code that lays out the rules for receiving a teaching license to allow both in-state and out-of-state (online) alternative teacher certification programs to certify teachers for licensure. The only good news about this bill is that it expires on July 31, 2023. For the purpose of this scorecard, the votes in both chambers after conference committee have been counted. Due to the importance of this bill for NDU and its members, this vote is weighted in the legislators’ overall scores.

House Bill 1347 Probationary Period for New Teachers Position: Opposed bill; supported Senate amendment Outcome: Passed House 59-34, Amendment Passed Senate 33-14, Passed Senate 42-5 - Loss While HB 1347 did pass both chambers, at North Dakota United we consider our efforts on our biggest legislative fight of the session to be a win. In its original form, HB 1347 tripled the amount of time that newly hired teachers are kept on probation while simultaneously removing their right to due process in their second and third years of employment. On the House side, ND United was able to get rid of the language that removed workplace protections, but the probationary period remained at three years. In a lively Senate floor debate an amendment was introduced to reduce the three year probationary period to two years, which happens to be the same length as the probationary period school principals face. HB 1347 was undoubtedly an attack on the rights of teachers and we are thankful the horrific first version of the bill did not hold. For the purpose of this scorecard, only the original vote in the House and the amendment vote in the Senate have been counted. Due to the importance of this bill for NDU and its members, this vote is weighted in the legislators’ overall scores.

22


House Bill 1414 Lengthens Time to Consider Contracts Position: Supported Outcome: Failed House 26-64 - Win This unexpected bill, which would have erased a mistake that was made by the Legislature in 2015 and shortened the period of time that teachers had to consider signing their contracts, from 30 days to 14. NDU supported this bill, because we believed it shouldn’t have been changed to start with.

House Bill 1531 Teaching Noncore Subjects without License Position: Opposed Outcome: Passed House 82-7, Passed Senate 28-19 - Loss HB 1531 allows for “community experts” without a teaching license to teach in hard-to-fill subject areas, with a permit. These “community experts” would be allowed to teach part time in any subject except elementary education, special education, mathematics, science, language arts, and social studies. ND United followed this bill closely as it enjoyed quite the ride of being amended in Senate Bill 2265, then Senate Bill 2013, before finally ending up in the OMB budget bill, Senate Bill 2015. In the OMB bill we were able to add language saying that if a school hired someone under these provisions, they would have to enroll them in the teacher-mentoring program at the expense of the district. For the purposes of this scorecard, only the original vote in each chamber have been counted.

Senate Bill 2025 Statewide Education Strategic Vision Position: Supported Outcome: Passed Senate 46-0, Amended in House and Passed 69-20, Passed Senate 47-0 North Dakota United has been proud to work with education stakeholders from across the state on this strategic vision. The plan works to cut duplication of services and ensure that all the stakeholders are working together, on a unified path, for what is best for North Dakota’s students. SB 2025 grants the Superintendent of Public Instruction the duty of reviewing the strategic vision and reporting to the legislature, ensuring the cooperation of all stakeholders. For the purpose of this scorecard, the original vote in the House and the second vote in the Senate have been counted.

Senate Bill 2215 K-12 Coordination Council Position: Supported Outcome: After Conference Committee: Passed Senate 47-0, Passed House 73-20 - Win SB 2215 establishes a K-12 Education Coordination Council, which takes all of the education stakeholder groups, including NDU, and coordinates their activities so that they are pulling to the same common goals. NDU supports this and all efforts that provide for the best academic experiences for North Dakota children.

Senate Concurrent Resolution 4004 Study on the Impacts of Violent and Disruptive Behaviors in Schools Position: Supported Outcome: Passed - Win North Dakota United stands firmly in support of this resolution which would study “the impact of violent, disruptive, and inappropriate behavior within the educational environment perpetrated by students against other students, teachers, and other school personnel, and the need to implement a uniform reporting system.” We hope this extremely important topic will be studied during the interim legislative session. This vote is not included in the scorecard, as the votes in both chambers were made by voice and there are no records of each legislator’s individual vote.
