Thomas Campbell on Government Reform

 

 


Cut bureaucracy and red tape

Tom's career as a successful businessman is why he understands how North Dakota can compete in the 21st century economy. He knows North Dakota has a tremendous opportunity to diversify its economy in areas like technology, health care and unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), but we need the right policies in Washington to help us grow. Tom will cut the bureaucracy and red tape and help our new businesses grow.

Voted NO on $5,000 limit on governor's executive bonus

Gov. Doug Burgum's first use of his veto powers might also result in the first time he's overruled by lawmakers. HB 1153, a response to what many saw as exorbitant bonuses issued by former Gov. Jack Dalrymple, would have limited future executive branch bonuses to $5,000. Burgum vetoed the bill, saying it "violates the constitutional exercise of executive authority to manage state agencies."

Lawmakers could overturn his veto. It takes just a two-thirds vote in each chamber to do so. This bill passed 91-1 in the House and 36-10 in the Senate. Lawmakers were peeved when Burgum railed against an alleged "good old boys" club in Bismarck. They might see this as their opportunity for a bit of revenge.

Follow-up: House lawmakers voted 84-7 to override the Governor on House Bill 1153 on March 29. The Senate failed to override Gov. Burgum's veto on March 30, with 13 of 47 senators voting to override the veto. [Sen. Campbell voted NAY on 3/30]
