Description

In this speech given at an unknown date between 1917 and 1920, William Langer, Attorney General of North Dakota, spoke about the formation and accomplishments of the Nonpartisan League in the state. The Nonpartisan League joined forces with the Equity, the Grange, and Farmers Union to regulate and audit taxes in North Dakota. Under Langer and the Nonpartisan League, state administrative forces, such as the State Board of Equalization, also united to reform laws governing corporations, such as the Northern Pacific Railway Company. All of Langer's efforts were meant to ease and balance the burden of taxes on North Dakotans.
