2022 South Dakota Legislative Session Center for the Prevention of Child Maltreatment Week 7 Update – February 21-25, 2022
February 22 was Crossover Day at the South Dakota Legislature. This is typically a long day for lawmakers as all bills and joint resolutions must pass the house of origin – House bills and resolutions must pass out of the House and Senate bills and resolutions must pass out of the Senate. According to this Argus Leader article, nearly 600 bills and resolutions we introduced this during the 2022 Legislative Session. Reducing the state sales tax, medical marijuana considerations and multiple spending bills for special projects, prison system upgrades, and construction projects at state universities are still under consideration.
