Week 6 Legislative Report

Home » 2023 Legislative Bills » Week 6 Legislative Report

The legislative bills relative to Game Fish and Parks that we have been following  have all been sent to the 41st day. Likelihood of new bills or hoghouse bills being introduced in the last 3 weeks of the legislative session are very slim.

We will be watching the appropriations process relative to the Game Fish and Parks budget to see if it is adopted as introduced or if there will be changes to increase or decrease FTEs, add or subtract general fund dollars, or if there are new programs funded. Not hearing any rumors of anything substantive happening at this point.

South Dakota Wildlife Federation will be sharing a booth with the 29/90 Club at the Sioux Falls Sportsman Show March 9th to the 12st. Please stop by the booth and say hello and register to win a prize! If you’d like to spend a couple hours in the booth volunteering your time to talk to men and women about becoming members of SDWF contact us today to set up a time to man the booth!

Keep your shovels handy this week sounds like they might be needed!
