Legislature: Day 17

February 4, 2008, 7:21 AM

Legislature: Day 17
 
The South Dakota Legislature reaches the halfway mark today. This is day number 17 of the 35-day legislative session.

Lawmakers are scheduled to meet through February 29th and then take off two weeks before returning to the Capitol to consider any vetoes and other last-minute issues.

They may meet for 35 days in even-numbered years and 40 days in odd-numbered years, but that may change.

A proposed constitutional amendment would allow the Legislature to meet for 40 days every year.

If the proposal wins approval of both the state Senate and House, it will automatically go on the fall ballot.

Another potential ballot measure would repeal an ancient constitutional provision that pays lawmakers just five cents a mile for traveling to and from the Capitol.
