Time is running out on the South Dakota Legislature. Today is legislative day 36 of 38, and all the major bill deadlines have passed as both the Senate and House look to wrap up the 97th South Dakota Legislative Session tomorrow before taking a two-week recess. Legislators will return to Pierre on March 28th for one final day of session, which is reserved for the consideration of vetoes made by Governor Noem.
This morning, I want to provide a brief snapshot of all the bills we tracked during session this year, including where they currently stand:
HB 1008: Provide a cause of action for certain employees that are required to receive a vaccination as a condition of employment and to declare an emergency – Deferred to the 41st legislative day

This was a very quiet session for the financial/credit union industry. Please keep an eye on The Memo over the next few weeks as I will break down all the bills that are successfully passed and signed by Governor Noem, once the 2022 Legislative Session officially comes to an end on March 28th.
