Gov. Daugaard Signs First Bill Of The Session

 

PIERRE, S.D. – Gov. Dennis Daugaard this afternoon signed the first bill of the 2017 Legislative Session into law. The piece of legislation, House Bill 1006, clarifies the timeline for posting notices for public meetings.

 

In 2016, the Legislature passed a bill requiring notices to be posted two intervening days prior to a meeting. HB 1006 clarifies the language by requiring notices to be posted three days before a meeting. The bill sets the same deadline for the submission of comments on rules.

 

Also today, the Governor signed two other bills into law: Senate Bill 8, an act to codify legislation enacted in 2016, and Senate Bill 16, an act to revise certain provisions regarding a violation for an escape from certain facilities, programs, or services located outside the penitentiary.
