BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - People who litter along a highway would face stiffer fines under a bill approved by the North Dakota Legislature.

It raises the littering fine from $100 to $500 for anyone who tosses trash along any publicly maintained road, including cigarette butts.

The Senate approved the 40-6 bill on Monday. The House approved it 67-23 last month.

The bill now goes to Gov. Doug Burgum.
