1 / 2
2 / 2

Rob talks about the longest government shutdown in American history, and blames it on a bloated federal government. The states should do more, and the intransigent politicians in Washington D.C. should do less.

He also comments on "abortion reversal" legislation proposed in Bismarck for the 2019 session, pointing out that we could probably do more to lower the number of abortions by focusing resources on better sex education and access to contraception.

Finally, state Rep. Rick Becker of Bismarck talks about his legislation to reform civil asset forfeiture in North Dakota.
