SD Lawmakers Look To Switch Seats

February 23, 2014, 6:47 AM by Perry Groten

SD Lawmakers Look To Switch Seats
PIERRE, SD -

The end of a term limit for a South Dakota lawmaker does not mean he or she is done making laws.  

David Novstrup will reach his four-term limit in the House this year. He hopes to stay in office by switching chambers with his father, fellow Aberdeen Republican Sen. Al Novstrup.  

Of the eight South Dakota legislators with expiring term limits, three hope to return to the Capitol next year by jumping chambers.   Three others plan to take a break from elected office.   Two will leave state politics when their terms expire and run in different elections.  

One proposed constitutional amendment to put a lifetime cap on term limits failed in committee. Another to extend limits to 12 consecutive years passed the House and is in the Senate.
