Gov. Daugaard Signs First Red Tape Bills Of Session

 

PIERRE, S.D. – Governor Daugaard signed five "red tape" bills that aim to reduce excessive complexity throughout South Dakota's laws:

 

SB 57 – An Act to revise certain references regarding the contractor's excise tax. 

 

HB 1015 – An Act to repeal the use of explosives, pyrotechnics, and fireworks for the protection of sunflower crops from depredating birds. 

 

HB 1020 – An Act to revise certain provisions and regulations regarding medical assistants. 

 

HB 1035 – An Act to repeal certain provisions and regulations related to labeling requirements for feed. 

 

HB 1037 – An Act to revise certain provisions regarding the South Dakota State Fair.

 

These pieces of legislation are part of an ongoing effort to make government more accessible by repealing unnecessary laws and regulations that could lead to confusion, delay or inaction.  Through 2017, the Daugaard Administration has repealed 1,541 sections of state statute, removing 129,746 words from the code, and the administration has proposed twenty more red tape bills this legislative session.
