Burgum signs DUI record-sealing bill
BISMARCK — North Dakota Gov. Doug Burgum has signed a bill sealing drunk driving records for offenders who stay out of trouble.
On Wednesday, April 10, the Republican governor signed House Bill 1334, a bipartisan bill touted as a way to give previous offenders a better chance of finding employment. It mandates that records be sealed if the offender doesn’t commit another crime for seven years after the initial DUI.
The bill doesn't apply to commercial drivers. It takes effect Aug. 1.
