SD Committee Holds Off Voting On 'Hope Card' Bill

SD Committee Holds Off Voting On 'Hope Card' Bill
PIERRE, SD - A newly amended bill that would introduce a "hope card" system related to protection orders in South Dakota is making slow progress in the House.
 
Under the original bill, South Dakotans with protection orders could carry a "hope card" instead of the longer paper document.  Proponents of the bill say this would speed up the process for law enforcement officers who need to verify the order's existence.

On Wednesday, the House Judiciary committee postponed voting on the bill because Republican Rep. Patricia Stricherz of Madison introduced an amendment that would allow for an electronic version of the program.

But the amendment did not include a fiscal note on how much that would cost, so lawmakers put off voting on the bill. 

Lawmakers may pick up where they left off Monday.
