February 24, 2015

Tow-TrucksOn Wednesday, February 25th, at 10:00 AM the SD House Commerce and Energy committee will take on 2 bills.

SB 80 – SoDakLiberty PostsIncrease the selling price of a towed vehicle that exempts the seller of the vehicle from certain vehicle dealer licensing requirements.

Sen Bob Ewing (R, Dist 31) and Rep Fred Romkema (R, Dist 31) are the prime sponsors. This bill flew through the Senate with no opposition. .This bill changes the threshold from $200 to $1000.

SB 177 – SoDakLiberty Posts – Establish a youth minimum wage.

Sen David Novstrup (R, Dist 3) and Rep Justin Cronin (R, Dist 23) are the prime sponsors. This bill passed Senate Commerce and Energy 5-1 and the Senate floor 26-7. This bill changes the minimum wage for those under 18 to $7.50. This is in response to the minimum wage going up due to the initiated measure on last years ballot. Hopefully this will allow employers to continue hiring high school kids this summer for temp labor.
