The North Dakota Catholic Conference is the latest organization to oppose Measure One on the November ballot.
That measure would create a state ethics commission, would require more transparency in donations, restrict gifts to elected officials from lobbyists, and prevents officials from becoming lobbyists for two years after leaving state government. It's a proposed amendment to the state's Constitution.
"This is a difficult issue for us," said Conference executive director Christopher Dodson. "No one's opposed to integrity."
