SD House Votes To Tack Years Onto Legislative Term
PIERRE, SD - State legislators could see their terms extended if a resolution passed by the full House becomes law.

The House Joint Resolution aims to amend South Dakota's constitution in favor of adding years to a legislative term.  The bill says legislators couldn't serve more than six consecutive terms or 12 consecutive years in the Senate and more than six consecutive terms or 12 consecutive years in the House.

The bill's prime sponsor, Republican Rep. Jim Bolin of Canton, says lawmakers need more than eight years to gain the experience they need to be effective lawmakers.

But Republican Rep. Stace Nelson of R-Fulton says he "couldn't disagree more," citing concerns that longer terms would "establish power that is not meant to be."

The resolution passed 43 to 26.
