Senate Local Government has two bills on Fri Feb 6

February 5, 2015

egore911-toiletOn Friday, February 6th, at 7:45 AM the SD Senate Local Government committee will take on 2 bills.

HB 1071 – SoDakLiberty PostsRevise the number of signatures required for a nominating petition for sanitary district trustees.

Rep Timothy Johns (R, Dist 31) and Sen Bob Ewing (R, Dist 31) are the prime sponsors.

This bill passed House Local Government and the House floor with no opposition. Here are my notes from prior to the house committee hearing:

This bill appears to make it easier to get the required signatures. Current law says 5% of voters are required to sign the petition, and that no more than fifty votes is needed. This bill would change that to 25 qualified voters or five percent of qualified voters, whichever is less.

HB 1104 – SoDakLiberty PostsRevise certain provisions regarding the notification procedure for payment of delinquent special assessments.

Rep Jean Hunhoff (R, Dist 18) and Sen Arthur Rusch (R, Dist 17) are the prime sponsors. This bill passed House Local Government and the House floor with no opposition. I never did listen to the testimony to find out what this one is doing.
