Today's Thought

No one plants a seed in the morning and eats the fruit in the evening. Parenting is a lot like gardening. What we sow today will be reached in a future season.

North Dakota's Legislature is considering a bill to give residents more power over their personal internet data....

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota's Legislature is considering a bill to give residents more power over their personal internet data.
 
     Fargo Republican Rep. Jim Kasper says his bill allows North Dakotans to ask companies what personal data has been collected and how it has been shared. The measure also would allow residents to demand the data be deleted and not collected in the future. Today's hearing on the bill comes amid growing worries about internet privacy.
 
     California passed similar legislation last year and several states are considering new laws. Kasper says he patterned his bill after a measure being considered in Washington state.
 
     Microsoft officials spoke in favor of the bill, and say it would not be hard for tech companies to comply.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota's House has approved a bipartisan bill that expands the locations where a parent unable to care for a baby can leave the child. Representatives approved the bill 92-0 today.

    Under current law, it's illegal to abandon a baby under the age of 1 unless it happens at a hospital. A parent of the infant or a person given consent by the parent may leave an unharmed infant at a hospital without fear of prosecution. The measure expands the locations, such as at a police station or a social services office. The child must be left with someone on duty.

    State officials have pushed changes to the current law because many rural communities don't have hospitals and they worry about infants literally being left out in the cold.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota's House wants a contest for a replacement state logo. Representatives voted 78-14 today to have the Commerce Department hold the contest and have a logo awarded in time for the 2020 state travel guide. The action comes after a new "Be Legendary" logo was awarded to a Minnesota firm. The business was awarded the $9,500 job without competition because it came in below the $10,000 threshold required for additional bids. The winner of the new competition would be paid $9,500. The measure now moves to the Senate for consideration.

    FARGO, N.D. (AP) - Residents in eastern North Dakota and western Minnesota are bracing for a winter storm that could bring a foot of snow and wind chills as low as minus 40.
 
     The National Weather Service today issued a winter storm warning through 6 p.m. Thursday for portions of eastern North Dakota and northwestern and north central Minnesota. The weather service says the Fargo and Moorhead, Minnesota metropolitan area could be hit with a narrow band of snow of up to 12 inches.
 
     Forecasters say the warning may be extended to the south shore of Lake Superior in northeastern Minnesota.
 
     Officials say blowing and drifting snow could make travel hazardous or impossible. Wind chills could cause frostbite on exposed skin in as little as 30 minutes.
