Gov. Daugaard Signs First Bills Of Session
PIERRE, SD -

Some of the first bills of this year's legislative session have been signed by South Dakota Governor Dennis Daugaard.

The first bill signed into law was HB 1016, which repeals outdated and unnecessary statutes and rules for the transportation department. State officials say this bill is one of Daugaard's "red tape repealer bills." In the last couple of years, several bills were passed, similar to this one, repealing unneeded administrative rules and obsolete sections of the law.

Other bills signed by the Governor on Monday include:

HB 1017     An Act to repeal certain outdated and unnecessary statutes related to the Department of Social Services.
HB 1018 An Act to revise certain provisions regarding the record-keeping process of child welfare agencies to the Department of Social Services.
HB 1024 An Act to place certain substances on the controlled substances schedule and to declare an emergency.
HB 1026 An Act to provide for the transfer of the state's interests in the Webster National Guard armory and underlying land to the city of Webster.
HB 1027 An Act to provide for the transfer of the state's interests in the Watertown National Guard armory to the city of Watertown.
HB 1035 An Act to provide certain provisions relating to the executive branch internship program.
HB 1037 An Act to authorize the Transportation Commission to establish limited speed zones on non-state trunk highways under the jurisdiction of the Department of Transportation.
HB 1055 An Act to revise certain provisions regarding references to the Internal Revenue Code.

SB 56 An Act to revise certain provisions regarding auditing standards used by the Department of Revenue.
