House Commerce has four bills on Fri Jan 30

January 30, 2015

art-deco-air-terminalOn Friday, January 30th, at 10:00 AM the SD House Commerce and Energy committee will take on 4 bills.

HB 1098 – SoDakLiberty PostsAuthorize extended terms of lease for airport facilities.

Rep Marty (R, Dist 28B) is the House prime sponsor of this bill. This changes the limit on leases from 25 years to fifty years. Not sure why this change is needed. Or why there needs to be a state law about it.

HB 1105 – SoDakLiberty PostsProvide for an affidavit creating a rebuttable presumption that a person is not an employee for purposes of workers’ compensation and to provide a penalty therefor.

Rep Hawley (D, Dist 7) is the House prime sponsor of this bill. I definitely want to listen to the testimony on this one before commenting. I say that because of how much the SSA has been going after people falsely saying certain employees are independent contractors. I want to see if this is a similar situation.

HB 1111 – SoDakLiberty PostsIncrease the costs and expenses considered reasonable for the collection of certaindishonored checks.

Rep Willadsen (R, Dist 11) is the House prime sponsor of this bill. This allows the charge for a bad check to go up from $30 to $40. If I am reading this right, this applies to checks made out to the state.

HB 1120 – SoDakLiberty PostsRevise the provisions related to phase in rate plans for plant additions and to declare an emergency.

Another bill from Rep Willadsen (R, Dist 11). I’m not sure what this one is trying to accomplish. It will be a good one to listen to and learn what is going on.
