Senate Judiciary committee has 4 bills on Tues Feb 17

February 16, 2015

Gerald-G-Woman-Police-Officer-1On Tuesday, February 17th, at 8:00 AM the SD Senate Judiciary committee will take on 4 bills.

SB 186 – SoDakLiberty Posts – Revise the execution of a warrant.

Sen Arthur Rusch (R, Dist 17) and Rep Kyle Schoenfish (R, Dist 19) are the prime sponsors. I’ll have to listen to this one to find out why this one is necessary. It has some language clarification. But it also adds this bit of code: “A peace officer and the courts shall give full faith and credit to a warrant entered by any state court in which either a felony or misdemeanor warrant is verified as active, and confirmed valid as extraditable by the originating jurisdiction. A peace officer may arrest and deliver the accused to the county jail in which the accused was located.”

HB 1076 – SoDakLiberty PostsPermit the submission of a title insurance policy in lieu of an abstract in certain instances.

Rep Mike Stevens (R, Dist 18) and Sen Arthur Rusch (R, Dist 17) are the prime sponsors. The bill passed House Judiciary and the House floor without opposition. If I remember testimony correctly, this bit of code is being changed because abstracts are not used as they were in the past.

HB 1099 – SoDakLiberty PostsRevise certain provisions related to transferable interests in limited liability partnerships.

Rep Kris Langer (R, Dist 25) and Sen Arthur Rusch (R, Dist 17) are the prime sponsors. The bill passed House Judiciary and the House floor without opposition. I vaguely remember the testimony in committee on this one. I don’t recall any red flags to the bill. (the bill doesn’t hold enough interest to re-listen to the committee hearing).

HB 1119 – SoDakLiberty PostsRevise certain adoption proceedings regarding the adult adoption of biological children.

Rep Steven Haugaard (R, Dist 10) and Sen Arthur Rusch (R, Dist 17) are the prime sponsors. The bill passed House Judiciary and the House floor without opposition.

Here is the sentence being added to code:

If the person being adopted is the biological child of the adoptive parent, the prerequisite of living in the home of the adoptive parent during the person’s minority is waived.

I wonder how often this particular situation happens? It actually sounds like it could be a good change.
