7 May 2021
Bismarck – Gov. Doug Burgum today announced that positions on the State Health Council are open for applications after the governor accepted the resignations of the council’s current members, thanking them for their service and contributions to the health and well-being of North Dakotans.
Under state law, all nine appointed members of the State Health Council are considered to have resigned effective Jan. 1 of the first year of each four-year term of the governor.
Burgum accepted the members’ statutorily triggered resignations, effective May 13, due to changes contained in House Bill 1247 affecting the authority, responsibilities and operations of the Health Council.
