Feb. 10 South Dakota Legislative Billwatch

SD_HouseThese are some of the more interesting and controversial bills which will be considered in the South Dakota Legislature today.

In HB 1117, we have a bill to restrict the posting of Gun Free Zone signs in public buildings (perhaps because they are akin to slapping a “kick me” sign on your back…or worse yet, a “shoot me” sign).

There is also a South Dakota term limits bill, HJR 1003, under consideration today.

HB 1158 to provide taxpayer funded health care to pregnant illegal aliens is up for a vote in the full House today; recall that last year it passed the full House and wasn’t stopped until it got to the state Senate.

There are also bills dealing with education standards, Common Core, and domestic crimes.

If you’d like to voice your opinion and/or concerns about any of these bills to the legislators, you can email them here or look up their phone numbers here. YOU can make a difference in YOUR government.
