Hundreds Of Laws Taking Effect July 1

June 29, 2012, 6:10 PM by Michaela Read

Hundreds Of Laws Taking Effect July 1
SIOUX FALLS, SD -

More than two hundred laws will be taking effect on Sunday.

"When you say how it makes me feel, it's overdue. It's way overdue," veteran Rick Barge said.

After July 1, veterans of all ages can display that status on their state ID card. And Barge was a big supporter of the law, but not because he wanted the limelight on himself.

"It was to help the younger veterans and basically the female veteran to be recognized," Barge said.

Although this law only applies to those who have served, there are plenty others that include everyone else.

After 23 years, the fee you pay to use 911 goes up to $1.25.

"Obviously the cost of running communication centers and things associated with that have gone up considerably since then," Sioux Falls Chief of Police Doug Barthel said.

And like most prices in 1989, it was time for a boost.

"Frankly you were getting a bargain at $0.75, so for it to go up just that small amount I think it is pretty minor," Barthel said.

Both laws will have a big impact on South Dakotans.

"I think it is a great thing for the people who served our nation that live in South Dakota," Barge said.

"Considering the level of service and the abilities that you have and can access, that's if, when, and hopefully that you never need to use it," Barthel said.
