SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (KELO) – South Dakota lawmakers passed 234 bills during this year’s legislative session and on Monday, July 1, 208 of those new laws will go into effect.  

Full election audit overshoots time, cost estimates

Some of the laws going into effect allow for $10 million to the Aeronautics Commission for improvement grants for public airports. In June, the commission heard applications from nine public airports, including the Sioux Falls Regional Airport which applied for $15 million to help pay for construction of a new concourse that will provide a minimum of four additional new gates and adjoining terminal apron.

Another law changes the designation of what qualifies for a legal newspaper. In Sioux Falls, the city council designated The Dakota Scout as the city’s legal newspaper starting July 1. One law taking effect stops a person that lives outside the state of South Dakota for at least 180 aggregate days in a calendar year from being eligible for resident hunting and fishing licenses.

Twenty-six bills were declared an emergency and went into effect immediately after Gov. Kristi Noem signed them. Read about those bills here.

SB201 referral becomes South Dakota’s latest fight

One law that was scheduled to go into effect July 1 but won’t be is Senate Bill 201, known as the so-called Landowner Bill of Rights. Opponents believe they have gathered enough signatures to force SB201 onto the November election ballot.
