Letter: ND’s young people will begin to abandon stateNorth Dakota’s strong economy provides an opportunity to move forward in creative ways. We could be developing new industries, helping our research universities move ahead, bolstering our pre-K-to-12 education, etc.
Instead, the Legislature is too busy to help the state progress because lawmakers are focused on relentlessly controlling reproduction with one hand and slapping children, parents, the poor, state employees and anyone who is not a white heterosexual male with the other.
The economies of other states will inevitably improve. When they do, North Dakota will still be sitting here, continuing to make excuses about why people don’t want to live here.
