List of measures

The North Dakota Brakeman Requirements Referendum, also known as Referendum 2, was on the November 8, 1960 ballot in North Dakota as a legislatively-referred state statute, where it was approved.[1]

The measure authorized railroads to operate certain trains of more than 40 freight cars with a crew of 5 men instead of 6. This changed the crew by reducing the number of required brakeman from two to one. The measure also provided that no brakeman should be discharged or lose his employment due to its enactment.[2]
