Burgum signs bills affecting Military Children

(Bismarck, ND) -- Governor Doug Burgum is working to make transitions for military children in North Dakota easier.

Burgum signed a bill Thursday that would excuse daycares approved by the Department of Defense from separate state licensing requirements.

He also signed a bill declaring April as Month of the Military Child and a separate measure to allow K through 12 students in military families to begin or complete a semester virtually.

Busloads of kids from Minot Air Force Based traveled to Bismarck for the signing ceremony.
