     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - A longtime North Dakota Republican is proposing a change to the state constitution that would explicitly bar non-U.S. citizens from voting in elections. Gary Emineth, a candidate for the state Senate seat in Bismarck, submitted the proposed constitutional amendment to the Secretary of State's office on Monday for review.
 
     The North Dakota Constitution already defines a voter as a U.S. citizen. But Emineth says the wording is "ambiguous" and another section is proposed for clarity. Secretary of State Al Jaeger says there have been some reports of non-U.S. citizens voting in North Dakota but nothing was ever proven.
 
     The amendment's supporters need to get signatures from at least 26,904 North Dakota voters by July 9 to put the measure on the November ballot.

     FARGO, N.D. (AP) - One of 32 people accused of dealing large amounts of fentanyl in the U.S and Canada has pleaded guilty in federal court. Anthony Gomes, of Davie, Florida, is charged with conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute controlled substances resulting in serious bodily injury and death, and money laundering.
 
     The investigation into the international drug trafficking ring began when 18-year-old Bailey Henke was found dead inside a Grand Forks apartment building in January 2015. Authorities say Henke overdosed on fentanyl supplied by Brandon Hubbard, a Portland, Oregon, man who told police he could be the largest fentanyl dealer in the country.
 
     Attorney General Jeff Sessions travelled to North Dakota last month to announce 10 more indictments in the case tabbed Operation Denial. Five of the defendants are fugitive Chinese nationals.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - The foundation working to build a Theodore Roosevelt Presidential Library in North Dakota has reversed an earlier decision to split the complex into two parts, in two cities, angering a top state lawmaker.
 
     The foundation's board in March voted to build a museum at Theodore Roosevelt National Park and a library in nearby Dickinson, where a university project is digitizing thousands of Roosevelt documents.
 
     The board voted 9-2 Monday to build the whole project at the park. Chairman Bruce Pitts says that should help with national fundraising. Gov. Doug Burgum also has pushed for the park location.
 
     Senate Majority Leader Rich Wardner is on the board and voted against the move. He says the Dickinson State University project sparked the library effort. He says he's irritated the effort's been "hijacked."

    BISMARCK, N.D. - Gov. Doug Burgum has directed government agencies to fly the United States and North Dakota flags at half-staff today and encouraged North Dakotans to do the same at their homes and businesses, in honor of Peace Officers Memorial Day.

    The Governor's directive is in accordance with a proclamation issued by President Donald Trump, who called upon all Americans to observe Peace Officers Memorial Day today and Police Week, May 13-19, with appropriate ceremonies and activities.

    "Our law enforcement officers have our deepest gratitude for their unwavering dedication to protecting our lives, our property and our liberty," Burgum said. "On Peace Officers Memorial Day - and every day - we honor the brave men and women who lost their lives in the line of duty. Their courage and sacrifice will always be remembered."

    The North Dakota Peace Officers Memorial ceremony will take place at 1:30 p.m. Wednesday near the Peace Officers Memorial on the east side of the state Capitol's Judicial Wing.
