The 65th Legislative Assembly met in organizational session from December 5-7, 2016, and convened in regular session Tuesday, January 3, 2017. They adjourned April 27, 2017.

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. Every bill is placed within a category that reflects the general subject matter of that bill. Selecting the appropriate category will lead you to the bills that are compiled under that category for purposes of publication.

The state legislature is now in the 65th Interim (2017-2018). Each legislator serves on one or more interim committees in the two-year period between legislative sessions. Between sessions, interim committees hold hearings, take testimony, and review information provided by the Legislative Council, state agencies, and interested parties as they consider issues. The issues studied and the membership of committees is determined by Legislative Management. By statute, Legislative Management consists of 17 legislators, including the Majority and Minority Leaders of both houses, the Speaker of the House, and six senators and six representatives.

In November of 2018, interim committees will submit a final committee report to the Legislative Management. The Legislative Management will then present its recommendations, together with bills and resolutions necessary for implementation, to the North Dakota Legislative Assembly, which will meet in January 2019.

P&A tracks the activities of Interim Committees studying disability-related issues and provides input and information, as needed.
