“Our view: Put online sellers on equal footing,” is the headline over a Grand Forks Herald editorial today, making the point that the U.S. Supreme Court should back South Dakota’s law instituting a 4.5 percent sales tax on online sales of retailers doing more than $100,000 in annual business. It’s a case with national implications because...

This guest post was submitted by McLean County State’s Attorney Ladd Erickson. Oil pipeline protests are a possibility in Minnesota and South Dakota this summer.  I helped Morton County prosecute DAPL cases and thought better about posting about it at the time.   I no longer have that constraint, and will example how social media fueled...

Over at the University of North Dakota professor Mark Trahant – a journalism professor, albeit one sharply biased in favor of the anti-Dakota Access Pipeline protesters – is holding a symposium on those protests which today featured a panel of panelists who covered them. One of the panelists – Los Angeles Times reporter Sandy Tolan...

Governor Doug Burgum and state Rep. Tom Beadle both joined Rob today to talk about the budget guidelines for the 2019 legislative session. “It just wasn’t a fully sustainable model,” Beadle said of spending in previous, boom-era legislative sessions. Burugm, meanwhile, says he’s out to “change the budget process itself.” “We don’t have a revenue...

“Citigroup Inc (C.N) added restrictions on firearms sales for new retail-sector clients, the Wall Street bank said on Thursday, the strongest move to date by a major U.S. lender following last month’s high school shooting in Florida,” Reuters reported last month. Here’s what the bank is doing specifically: In an emailed statement Citi said it...

Tax Commissioner Ryan Rauschenberger was on air with me today to discuss the Supreme Court fight over applying state taxes to online sales (I wrote about it earlier today), and to correct an unfortunate misrepresentation of his position perpetrated by his Democratic challenger Kylie Oversen, and he revealed something pretty interesting. If you buy something...

Yesterday I wrote a post wondering if North Dakota Democrats – U.S. Senate candidate Heidi Heitkamp and U.S. House candidate Mac Schneider, in particular – weren’t overplaying their hands in their attempts to fan the flames of rural anxiety over Trump’s trade standoff with China. The Democrats have invested so much political capital into promoting...

Kylie Oversen, a former state legislator from Grand Forks and chairwoman of the state Democratic-NPL, announced her bid for tax commissioner last month at UND. Sam Easter/Grand Forks Herald.

Yesterday Kylie Oversen, the North Dakota Democratic Party’s candidate for Tax Commissioner, posted a press release urging the U.S. Supreme Court to overturn the Quill vs. North Dakota precedent which limits states to applying the sales tax only to entities with a physical presence within their borders. Quill was actually litigated by then-Tax Commissioner Heidi...

The past couple of weeks I’ve been listening to the exceptional podcast “In the Dark” produced by Minnesota-based American Public Media. The topic of the podcast’s first season, first released in 2016, is the Jacob Wetterling case, but toward the end of the series is an episode dealing with a problem I hadn’t really thought...
