Busy 2024 Session Ahead At Capitol

(Pierre, SD) — The upcoming South Dakota legislative session is expected to be a busy one. Forty-two potential new laws — 26 in the House and 16 in the Senate — had already been pre-filed by Friday for the January 9th opener. Among those is a proposal from the state Department of Education that would merge the two boards that deal with ethics of K-12 teachers and administrators. House Republican leader Will Mortenson also wants to put two legislators on the state Capitol Complex Restoration and Beautification Commission. The mayor of Pierre would still be on it, as would the seven members that the governor currently appoints.
