South Dakota House Passes Gift Restriction Bill
On Tuesday, the House unanimously passed House Bill 1073.
The bill seeks to ban lawmakers from accepting gifts from lobbyists exceeding $100 in value per year.
Lawmakers advanced HB 1073 in response to the recent repeal of Initiated Measure 22, which left the state with no limit on gifts lawmakers could accept from lobbyists.
The bill is now headed to the Senate for consideration.
