Issues

Law enforcement drones

On January 21, 2013, Rohr, fellow Representatives Rick Becker, Dick Anderson, Thomas Beadle, Joe Heilman, Curt Hofstad, David Monson, Nathan Toman, and Ben Hanson, and Senator Margaret Sitte introduced HB 1373 to restrict the use of unmanned aerial vehicles (drones) by law enforcement agencies. This bill would require agencies to receive a court warrant for any drone use, and such warrants would only be obtainable for felony investigations. Exceptions would be made for drones used to patrol the Canadian border, aid law enforcement agencies where there is "reasonable suspicion" that quick action is necessary, and evaluate damage during and after natural disasters. HB 1373 would also allow people injured by governmental violation of these restrictions to sue the offending law enforcement agencies. The bill would expressly prohibit surveillance by drones with lethal or non-lethal weapons, private surveillance of other private parties without informed consent, and surveillance of people exercising their constitutional rights of free speech and assembly.[2][3] On January 28, the Judiciary Committee held its first hearing on the bill.[4]

Scorecards

North Dakota Legislative Review

See also: North Dakota Legislative Review

The North Dakota Policy Council, a North Dakota-based nonprofit research organization, published the North Dakota Legislative Review, a comprehensive report on how state legislators voted during the 2011 legislative session. The scorecard seeks to show how North Dakota legislators voted on the principles the Council seeks to promote. The Council recorded and scored votes on both spending bills and policy bills, and awarded points accordingly. Policy issues voted upon included income tax cuts, pension reform, and government transparency. On spending legislation, the Council accorded a percentage score based on how much spending the legislator voted against. On policy legislation, scores range from the highest score (100%) to the lowest (0%). A higher score indicates that the legislator voted more in favor of the values supported by the Council.[8] Rohr received a score of 77.78% on policy legislation and voted against 41.44% of state spending. Rohr was ranked 17th on policy and 4th on spending, out of 94 House members evaluated for the study.[9]

Personal

Rohr has three children and currently resides in Mandan, North Dakota.
