Like most years, the elephant in the room for this upcoming year?s legislative session, is going to be the budget (no pun intended) and it has been discussed in three different posts in the past week or so. Lawmakers do much more out there than just hand out money.
What other issues should the lawmakers in Pierre tackle next year?
- Blog control act
- School laptop program (DOA?)
- Abortion ban
- Video Lottery ban
- A Sioux Falls casino
- Texting while driving
- The official state stuffed animal
- Surfing while driving
- Fine tune the smoking ban
- using a cell phone while driving
- Tax credits for renewable energy construction
Of course we understand that many of items may be tied to budget because they need to be funded.
