  • BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — The newest group of North Dakota legislators is getting used to their jobs.
    The Legislature is holding a three-day organizational session at the Capitol this week. It started Monday and will end Wednesday after Gov. Jack Dalrymple unveils his budget recommendations.
    Republican Rep. Rick Becker is a Bismarck plastic surgeon. He says the most important job of the organizational session is to meet new colleagues and "rub elbows a little bit."
    One of the Democratic newcomers is Fargo banker George B. Sinner. His parents came to his swearing-in Monday. They are former Gov. George A. Sinner and first lady Jane Sinner.
    George Sinner is a former state senator himself, and he says watching his son take office is "pure joy."
