What Should Be On The SD Legislative Agenda?

January 13, 2014, 5:55 PM by Jared Ransom

What Should Be On The SD Legislative Agenda?
SIOUX FALLS, SD -

From the death penalty to education and Medicaid funding, South Dakota legislators will have their hands full when the gavel strikes for the first time in 2014. There are also a few other issues South Dakotans would like to see on the legislative docket.

"The minimum wage is a huge issue for us in this state and throughout the nation. So, I hope they will work with that and work together on that because I think the majority of people want that approached," Charles Berdahl said.

Charles and Judy Berdahl live in Downtown Sioux Falls, and they'll both be keeping a close eye on what happens at the state capitol this year. Looking back at what took place in the state in 2013, they'd like to see more help for ranchers West River at the state level, and also a closer look at the actions taken with South Dakota's EB-5 program.

"I have concerns about the mismanagement of funds in the state, and I'd like to know, there should be more fresh air in there and not so much secrecy and I don't know why there's no activity going on about that right now," Judy Berdahl said.

All these issues are very important to South Dakotans, but none of them can get accomplished unless both sides of the aisle work together.

"My concern is that the Democrats and Republicans start working together, get the bi-partisanship out of the way so they can work for us, work for all of us," Charles said.

Both Charles and Judy agree working together should be the jumping off point as things get started in Pierre. If not, the rest of the agenda may be a waste of time.
