South Dakota Annual Gift Limit for Lobbyists Increased
South Dakota Secretary of State Steve Barnett published the 2021 annual limit for lobbyist gifts to public officials.
Each year, the annual cumulative value is adjusted.
It is based on the change in the consumer price index for urban wage earners and clerical workers for the year before the immediately preceding year.
The change for 2019 was 2.3%, making the newly adjusted cumulative gift limit $106.43 for 2021.
Public officials and members of their immediate families may not accept gifts with a cumulative value greater than $106.43 from any lobbyist or principal during the 2021 calendar year.
