Session Laws of North Dakota are published after each regular and special legislative session and contain the laws enacted during that session. The Session Laws also contain veto messages of the Governor, measures submitted to the electorate since the last session, and resolutions.
The Chapter Categories is the online version of the Session Laws derived from the printed version of the Session Laws.
Every bill is placed within a category that reflects the general subject matter of that bill. Within a category, bills generally are arranged in ascending order by Century Code section number, and then a Session Laws chapter number is assigned. Thus, Session Laws chapter numbers do not have any relationship to date of enactment.
Selecting the appropriate category will lead you to the bills that are compiled under that category for purposes of publication of the Session Laws.
