PIERRE, S.D. (KELO) — State legislators plan to try again on allowing people to take South Dakota driver-license tests in languages other than English.
His bill calling for a Spanish-language version would take effect January 1, 2022. The bill would add an exception to the state law that says English is the common language of South Dakota.
Many businesses in Sioux Falls and the neighboring area from Brookings to Yankton to Mitchell support the change.
Two Sioux Falls Democrats, Senator Reynold Nesiba and Representative Linda Duba, were lead sponsors of last year’s bill. The Legislature’s two chambers have two-thirds Republican majorities.
