Gov. Daugaard Signs Last Bills

 

PIERRE, S.D. – Gov. Dennis Daugaard has signed the remaining bills from the 2018 Legislative Session into law. Senate Bill 166 was the final bill signed by Daugaard, and is anticipated to be the last bill he will sign as governor. The bill repeals unnecessary statutes relating to the South Dakota Department of Agriculture’s inspection of moisture and protein-measuring devices.

 

The measure coincides with the Governor’s red tape repeal efforts, which the administration began in its first term. From 2011 to 2017, Gov. Daugaard approved the elimination of over 4,600 sections of obsolete or unnecessary laws and rules, accounting for more than 515,000 words. He signed additional red tape repeal bills this legislative session, including this measure which removes 482 more words.

 

“The natural tendency of government is to add to the body of laws, but over the last several years we have been doing much of the opposite in South Dakota,” Gov. Daugaard said. “I thank legislators for joining with me to remove overly burdensome and unnecessary provisions from the books. Our businesses and citizens are better off thanks to these efforts.”
