SD Governor Signs 45 Bills, Repeals Some Laws

SD Governor Signs 45 Bills, Repeals Some Laws

South Dakota Gov. Dennis Daugaard has signed 45 bills into law.

One bill he signed Friday repeals outdated policies on the sale of petroleum products. Other new laws will require the daily recitation of the pledge of allegiance in public schools and appoint a task force to study child sexual abuse.

Another addition to statute makes the fourth Saturday in July the "Day of the American Cowboy."

Daugaard says the nature of government is to add laws, but more isn't always better. The state repealed 378 unneeded rules between the 2012 and 2013 legislative sessions. Daugaard's office says the governor already signed 21 bills this session to repeal existing laws.

Daugaard says it's important to get rid of the "clutter" in state government.
