|00||2019 Session Information||
We are moving into the third week of the 2019 Legislative Session and things have been relatively slow with introduction of bills and committee meetings. This week Governor Noem will give her budget address on Wednesday. Currently committees are dealing with summer study bills and department bills.
Thank you to everyone for attending ABATE Legislative Days. They were very successful and many legislators attended the Legislator Social. The Moose Lodge was great for the meeting. Also thank you to all the sponsors and chapters providing the meals. If you didn’t attend, make plans to attend next year as it is a great time to visit with legislators and inform them about ABATE. We were especially grateful for former Rep. Jim Putnam for attending – everyone loved seeing and visiting with him.
