29 SD Senate Commemorations enrolled during the 2015 legislative session

March 6, 2015

1340311088Earlier I noted the SD House had passed 36 House Commemorations this year. The SD Senate passed 29 legislative commemorations. These really have no impact upon anything. Here is the definition of a legislative commemoration per the Joint Rules:

A legislative commemoration expresses recognition of service or achievements of national or statewide importance or expresses sorrow over death or loss

All 29 of the commemorations introduced in the Senate passed and the House concurred with. Most of them relate to schools.
