Governor Vetoes SB 115

South Dakota lawmakers apparently will have a reason to go back to Pierre on March 25.

Governor Dennis Daugaard’s office says the chief executive has vetoed Senate Bill 115.

Spokesman Joe Kafka describes it this way:

SB115 An Act to increase the commercial fertilizer inspection fee for purposes of fertilizer-related research and to create the Nutrient Research Education Council to promote such research.

There had been just a little talk that there would be no need for one final legislative day if no bills were vetoed.

Now, I’m no expert on the Legislature, but a veto would seem to mean if lawmakers save that final day to consider overriding vetoes, this is their reason.

Kafka says Daugaard has also issued two line-item vetoes:

HB1137 is an act to impact education in South Dakota, to make an appropriation therefor, and to declare an emergency.

HB1185 is an act to appropriate money for the ordinary expenses of the legislative, judicial, and executive departments of the state, the expenses of state institutions, interest on the public debt, and for common schools.

Legislators, if they wish to override the vetoes, appear to have something to do on March 25.
