Plenty Of Issues For South Dakota Legislature

No major overriding issue, but plenty to talk about. That’s one prediction about the 2014 South Dakota legislature.

Dave Owen, President of the South Dakota Chamber of Commerce and Industry, started his round of preview meetings in Yankton.

He says there won’t be a shortage of issues…

 

Next year will be an election year from the Governor through all the legislators. Owen says there are a number of issues that have political potential…

 

Governor Dennis Daugaard will give his budget address to legislators on December third.
