2021 Legislative Session

The Department of Ag and Natural Resources has done a nice job of communicating bills they are sponsoring which is summarized in the download below. The SDDP board is supportive of each of these bills and providing testimony as needed. The first bill to reach committee is SB 52 which extends the CAFO state permit to 10 years instead of 5. SDDP provided written testimony as a proponent along with several other agriculture groups. This morning it passed out of the Senate Ag and Natural Resources committee with a “do pass” recommendation back to Senate body.
