SD House Urges Hearings On Development Agency

February 5, 2014, 5:09 AM

SD House Urges Hearings On Development Agency
PIERRE, SD -

The South Dakota House has passed a resolution calling for a legislative committee to conduct hearings into the operations of the state's economic development agency.

Representatives voted 51-18 for the measure, which next goes to the Senate.

The Legislature's Government Operations and Audit Committee will hold hearings after several reviews are completed on the Governor's Office of Economic Development. Gov. Dennis Daugaard ordered the reviews after reports that a former official had double-billed the state for travel and part of a grant had been improperly diverted.

The legislative hearings will include an analysis of state involvement in promoting a failed beef packing plant. The company developing the Aberdeen plant recruited foreign investors using the federal EB-5 program, in which foreign investors can secure permanent residency for investing at least $500,000.
