The board is working on updating our law, North Dakota Century Code 43-25. Most of the changes are housekeeping in nature in order that the Code agrees with the terminology of our Administrative Code Title 49 which has been approved and effective since Jan 1, 2017.

Two other changes in the Century Code are to clarify the renewal process and reciprocity. The first hearing was held Jan 4, 2017 in the Senate IBL Committee. The second hearing is scheduled for:
