From the Bismarck Tribune:
HB1087 would require North Dakota students to pass the U.S. citizenship test to graduate high school.Earlier Arizona enacted a similar law.
Students that graduate in 2017 would need to get at least 60 questions on the 100-question test correct; for subsequent classes, the requirement would be 70 questions.
The bill passed the House by an 85-1 vote and the Senate by a 43-4 margin.
HB1087 came as part of a national movement called the Civics Education Initiative. The group’s goal is to have each state pass a similar bill by Sept. 17, 2017, the 230th anniversary of the signing of the U.S. Constitution.
