SD Governor Signs Last Bills Of Session Into Law

SD Governor Signs Last Bills Of Session Into Law
PIERRE, SD -

South Dakota Gov. Dennis Daugaard has signed the last 22 bills of the session.

One new law will treat e-cigarettes as a regulated tobacco product, prohibiting sale to minors. E-cigarettes are battery-powered devices that create nicotine vapor and resemble traditional cigarettes.

Two other measures signed Friday establish studies. One is on tribal economic development and the others is on autism services and insurance coverage.

Daugaard also authorized funding for a new swine facility at South Dakota State University and altered the funding for a veteran's home in Hot Springs.

Another law changes the funding formula for the Building South Dakota Fund, which supports economic development initiatives.

Daugaard only vetoed one measure earlier this session, which leaves legislators with little to do on Monday, the last day of the 2014 session.
