Rep. Hanson Selected as ND Representative for National Legislative Leadership Program
(BISMARCK, ND) – Representative Karla Rose Hanson (D-Fargo) was one of 50 legislators from 48 states selected for the 2019 Emerging Legislative Leaders Program.

The national leadership program, which starts today in Charlottesville, Virginia, is a collaborative effort of the State Legislative Leaders Foundation and the University of Virginia’s Darden School of Business Administration.

“It is a great honor to be a part of this exemplary class of legislative leaders and to have an opportunity to learn at this distinguished institution,” Hanson said.

To compete for the program, a legislator must be nominated by one of the leaders of their legislative assembly. Hanson was nominated by Rep. Lawrence Klemin (R-Bismarck), who serves as the Speaker of the House, and Rep. Joshua Boschee (D-Fargo), who serves as House Minority Leader.

Hanson has represented District 44 (North Fargo) since 2016. She served on the Judiciary and Transportation Committees during the 2019 legislative session. Currently, she is serving as a member of Legislative Management Committee, as the Vice Chair of the Judiciary Interim Committee, as a member of the Higher Education Interim Committee, and as a member of the Commission on Juvenile Justice.
