Gov. Noem Signs Blaze Pink Bill into Law

Signs Six Other Bills


PIERRE, S.D. – Today, Governor Kristi Noem signed HB 1228, which provides that required exterior hunting garments may be fluorescent pink, into law.


“This bill is very special because it is the first bill to be sponsored by a father-daughter legislator duo,” said Governor Noem. “I want to congratulate Senator Arch Beal and Representative Jessica Bahmuller on this legislation that gives hunters more options for their hunting garments. I’m looking forward to seeing lots of blaze pink in the fields this pheasant season!”
