BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota's secretary of state says he's finished his review of five initiated measures that voters want to put on the November ballot.
Al Jaeger says he'll be announcing Tuesday how many of the citizen initiatives will qualify for the fall election.
One proposal would ban smoking in public workplaces, including bars.
Another would make it a felony crime to commit acts of extreme cruelty against a horse, cat or dog.
One measure would set aside a portion of North Dakota's oil tax collections for conservation projects.
Another would make it legal to grow and use marijuana as a medicine.
The fifth proposed ballot measure would expand the rights of North Dakota farmers and ranchers to run their operations as they see fit.
