S. Dakota Lawmakers Meet Tuesday Through Friday

PIERRE, SD

South Dakotans wanting to see lawmakers in action should steer clear of the Capitol on Monday.

Legislators this week meet Tuesday through Friday. The Legislature in recent years has moved to mostly four-day work weeks to give lawmakers a chance to spend an extra day at home taking care of their farms, ranches, businesses and jobs.

The schedule this year includes just one five-day work week, which is the first week of March. That's the final week of the main run of the session, when the House and Senate traditionally deal with major issues and pass the state budget for the next year.

The annual session started last week.
