SD Lawmakers To Study Sex Abuse, Tribal Economics

SD Lawmakers To Study Sex Abuse, Tribal Economics
PIERRE, SD -

South Dakota lawmakers have passed bills creating three task forces this year instead of relying on the legislative executive board to set up summer studies.

The Legislature's executive board typically picks topics to study over the summer after the session ends. But legislators this year established a few studies in statute rather than risk their topic being overlooked among a broad pool of proposed topics.

The studies often impact state policies.

Two studies likely to be covered by the Legislature are on child sexual abuse and economic development within tribes. A third proposal to study autism may be taken over by the governor's office if it's signed into law.

Sen. Ryan Maher is the chair of the executive board. He says the board has the funding for two more studies.
