New Fiscal Year Brings New Laws

The start of July is also the start of the new fiscal year in South Dakota. Around the country, laws passed by state legislatures are now active. In South Dakota, according to the Rapid City Journal, there are more than 200 new laws passed by the 2014 Legislature. The most prominent may be the state-wide texting ban, but the new laws also include new rules for transparency for schools and police.

More stories on the 2014 legislative session can be found in the archive.
