S. Dakota Legislature Cancels Sessions Next Week
PIERRE, SD - South Dakota legislative leaders have announced that there will be no session for two days next week to mourn the loss of former Gov. Bill Janklow.

Janklow, a Republican who served four terms as governor but resigned as the state's U.S. representative after causing fatal car crash, died Thursday at age 72.

In a news release, Office of the Governor spokesman Tony Venhuizen says legislative sessions Tuesday and Wedneday have been cancelled.

Janklow's body will lie in state at the Rotunda of the South Dakota Capitol Tuesday morning. His funeral is scheduled for Wednesday in Sioux Falls.

House Republican Leader David Lust of Rapid City says legislative sessions on Tuesday and Wednesday will be cancelled. He says there are no plans to make up the two lost days, so the 35-day session will be shortened to just 33 days.
