On episode 3 of the Plain Talk Podcast I talked about the longest government shutdown in American history, which I blame on the bloated federal government. The states should do more, and the intransigent politicians in Washington D.C. should do less.
I also comment 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.
