N.D. Senate committee gives nickname bill 'do not pass' recommendation
The Senate Education Committee has given a do-not pass recommendation to the Fighting Sioux nickname bill.
The 5-2 vote against the bill came late this afternoon and the day after the committee listened to about five hours of testimony from nickname supporters and opponents.
Senate Majority Leader Bob Stenehjem did not know when the bill would go to the floor for a final vote.
