BISMARCK, N.D. – In a surprising turnaround, the North Dakota Senate passed a health care nullification bill on Friday.
Nullification appeared dead after the Human Services Committee voted 3-1 to oppose SB2309. But Sen. Dick Dever (R-Bismarck) overcame the committee recommendation with a passionate speech on the Senate floor.

The revised version of SB2309 passed 27-19.Details
