BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - The North Dakota House has rejected an amendment to a resolution that would require state lawmakers to live in their districts.

Legislative leaders from both parties had been pushing the resolution that would amend the state constitution, should voters agree.

Current law only requires legislators to live in their districts 30 days prior to an election.

The resolution would have required the lawmaker to live in the district on the day he or she takes office.
