Doug Burgum on Civil Rights

 

 


Repeal Sunday morning shopping ban

North Dakota's Republican-led Legislature repealed the nation's toughest Sunday business restrictions--rules that are rooted in religious tradition and that have been in place since statehood. Senators voted 25-21 on the House bill repealing the ban on Sunday morning shopping. Republican Gov. Doug Burgum has supported the repeal and is expected to sign the bill.

Fly flags of ND tribal nations at Governor's Office

We've expanded opportunities for communication, collaboration, and meaningful engagement with each of the sovereign tribal nations within our borders. Our Indian Affairs Commission hosted two well-attended conferences this past year on strengthening government to government relationships and partnerships--bringing together tribal leaders--federal--state--and local officials.

As we continue to engage with the tribes in discussions about priorities, we will do so with mutual respect and the understanding that we are all North Dakotans. In that spirit of mutual respect, we're honored to announce that the Governor's Office will begin to display the flags of the five tribal nations with whom we share geography--alongside our state and national flags--outside of the Governor's Office in Memorial Hall.

No discrimination because of sexual orientation

Q: Would you support discrimination protections for LGBT citizens?

Nelson: Yes.

Stenehjem: I do support extending anti-discrimination protections for the LBGT community in housing and employment. One thing that will be necessary is to establish that discrimination in that area is a problem that needs to be addressed. No one should have to worry about finding a job or a place to live because of their sexual orientation. But these protections must also be accompanied by protections for religious freedom, especially as it relates to small business.

Burgum: As with any legislation, the specific language is very important. I believe no one should be discriminated against because of their sexual orientation and would want to work with the legislature to appropriately address this issue.

Gay marriage is ok, but not running on social issues

Very few southwest North Dakotans pushed them on Burgum's social leanings -- both he and Stenehjem are on record supporting gay marriage and have been quiet on most other social issues -- and said he saw this as a sign of what voters are truly concerned about.

"We're not running on social issues," Burgum said. "We're running because we believe we can get conservative business leaders into the office -- people who can help set the state on the right track, relative to our fiscal things. It (social issues) doesn't come up. We don't talk about it and they don't bring it up, because I don't think it's the thing that's leading on voter's minds right now."
