Major Bills to be Voted On| 3/11/2013
They`ll also review a House bill that would prevent women from having abortions based on gender selection or genetic defects like Down Syndrome.
Also this week, the North Dakota Legislature will also take up the controversial topic of whether to expand Medicaid. North Dakota`s House voted last month to expand Medicaid to cover more un-insured residents. The change is part of the new federal health care law.
While House Republicans criticized the idea, enough voted for it because they worried the state would have to take on more costs without it. The measure will be a much tougher sell to Senate Republicans, who have two-thirds control of the chamber.
