Budget, smoke-outs and pot: Legislature enters its last days
PIERRE, S.D. (AP) — South Dakota lawmakers have just four more days to work out most of the details in this year’s legislative session.
As deadlines loom, and issues from the budget to medical marijuana and self-defense laws remain unsettled, many lawmakers are expecting some long nights at the Capitol in Pierre.
The top issues will be settling how to best use a massive windfall of one-time funds, several controversial bills that have been revived and medical marijuana.
