A Grand Forks group wants the three abortion bills Governor Jack Dalrymple signed last week put to a statewide vote. The Secretary of State received the paperwork today.

Al Jaeger's office now has five to seven business days to accept or reject the paperwork. The sponsoring committee is a group of residents here in Grand Forks. Their petition effort would stall the laws from being enacted until North Dakota voters had a say on the abortion bills signed last week. Each petition would need 13,452 signatures.
