SD Lawmaker Proposing Long-Term Planning Committee
January 16, 2012, 5:38 AM
PIERRE, SD -
House Republican Leader David Lust of Rapid City says he will ask the South Dakota Legislature to set up a new long-term planning committee that would conduct studies on key issues.
Lust says the Legislature too often deals with education and other issues one year at a time. He says that puts the part-time Legislature at a disadvantage when dealing with full-time officials in the executive branch of government.
Lust says the proposed new committee would be a permanent panel that would compete with the executive branch in suggesting ideas.
