Senate committee unanimously approves hemp bill

PIERRE, S.D. — South Dakota’s hemp bill will be moving forward in the legislature.

A senate committee has unanimously approved the bill, which now goes to the senate floor. The next step would be the governor’s desk.

Kristi Noem vetoed a similar bill last year. This is day 26 of the legislature’s 37-day session.

Both houses are pushing toward cross-over day on Thursday, which is when bills have to move from the chamber of origin to the other house.
