Priorities & opportunities

​As your representative, I am working to:


  • Fight for strong and safe neighborhoods as the state faces an increase of drug and property crimes. This includes addressing the state’s shortage of mental health and addiction services and fully supporting our criminal justice professionals and first responders.


  • Increase opportunities for you to get ahead and stay ahead. Instead of giving tax breaks to oil companies in Oklahoma and Texas, I'll prioritize property tax reform for you, higher education investments, and services that help North Dakotans.


  • Stand up for what's right by advocating for non-discrimination legislation, greater transparency and accountability in government, and criminal justice reforms that improve lives while saving money.


My goals every day are to be open-minded and accessible, to find common ground, and to forge solutions to the problems our community faces. If you want to discuss an issue, let's connect

Karla Rose Hanson

Representing District 44 In The North Dakota House

You can view the legislation I sponsored during the 2017 session, as well as an amendment I proposed to protect North Dakotans' internet privacy.


During the 2017 session, I served on the Judiciary and Political Subdivisions committees. During the 2017-18 interim, I am serving on the Justice Reinvestment and Health Services committees.


Thank for the honor of representing your values and priorities in the state legislature.
