Senate Commerce and Energy committee has 4 bills on Tues Mar 3

March 3, 2015

1415014485On Tuesday, March 3rd, at 10:00 AM the SD Senate Commerce and Energy committee will take on 4 bills.

Also on the agenda:

Confirmation of the executive reappointment of David R. Emery, Pennington County, Rapid City, South Dakota, to the South Dakota Ellsworth Development Authority.

Confirmation of the executive reappointment of Pat Costello, Lincoln County, Sioux Falls, South Dakota, to the position of Commissioner of the Governor’s Office of Economic Development.

Confirmation of the executive reappointment of Marcia Hultman, Hughes County, Pierre, South Dakota, to the position of Secretary of the Department of Labor.

This is a rough group of bills. For some reason I missed the testimony for most of these bills on the House side.

HB 1103 – SoDakLiberty PostsRevise certain provisions relating to comparative negligence.

Rep Mike Stevens (R, Dist 18) and Sen Arthur Rusch (R, Dist 17) are the prime sponsors. This bill passed House Judiciary 10-3 and the House floor 54-13. I somehow keep missing testimony on this bill to understand it.

HB 1107 – SoDakLiberty PostsRevise the definition of certain alcoholic beverages that are classified as cider.

Rep Kristin Conzet (R, Dist 32) and Sen Ried Holien (R, Dist 5) are the prime sponsors. Current law only includes apples in the definition of ciders. This bill would add pears as well. It passed House Commerce 13-0 and the House floor 67-1. It is a good bill that should pass easily.

HB 1209 – SoDakLiberty PostsRevise certain provisions relating to changes in terms of credit card agreements.

Rep Kristin Conzet (R, Dist 32) and Sen Tim Rave (R, Dist 25) are the prime sponsors. This bill passed House Commerce 11-0 and the House floor 67-3. This is another bill I still need to research to better understand.

HB 1235 – SoDakLiberty PostsUpdate the valuation manual related to the valuation of assets, liabilities, and reserves.

Rep Mark Willadsen (R, Dist 11) and Sen Corey Brown (R, Dist 23) are the prime sponsors. This bill was amended in House Commerce and passed 11-0. It then was amended on the House floor and passed 66-1. Yep, another bill I somehow kept missing the testimony on.
