Equal parenting petitions approved for circulation

Posted: Updated:

BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota Secretary of State Al Jaeger has approved petitions for a proposed ballot measure on parental rights. That means advocates of a proposed law giving both parents equal rights and decision-making responsibilities in child custody cases can begin collecting signatures. 

Proponents must collect 13,452 signatures by March 12, 2014, to get the measure on the June 2014 primary election ballot. They have until June 18, 2014, to get the measure on the November 2014 general election ballot. 

Many supporters of the initiated measure are from Walsh County. Voters there passed a similar law last November but state Attorney General Wayne Stenehjem has challenged the local initiative, saying it usurps state authority.
