House Local Government committee has 2 bills on Tues Feb 24

February 23, 2015

Champagne-Glass-Remix-4-by-Merlin2525On Tuesday, February 24th, at 10:00 AM the SD House Local Government committee will take on 2 bills.

*** This meeting is important. All House bills have to be moved on the floor for Crossover day on Wednesday. Both of these bills are House bills, so they must have action taken during this meeting.

HB 1197 – SoDakLiberty PostsAccommodate legislation for community improvement districts.

Rep Steve Westra (R, Dist 13) and Sen Ernie Otten (R, Dist 6) are the prime sponsors. This is a hoghouse vehicle bill that currently has no content.

HB 1211 – SoDakLiberty PostsRepeal the requirement for a marriage license and to provide for a marriage certificate.

Rep Steven Haugaard (R, Dist 10) and Sen Phil Jensen (R, Dist 33) are the prime sponsors. I need to listen to the testimony to be sure. But from reading the bill it appears to get government at least a little bit removed from marriage. This would be a step in the right direction if true.
