Democratic leaders continue to be frustrated by action on bills

PIERRE, S.D. (KCCR) – South Dakota Democratic leaders continue to express frustration with action on bills working their way through the 94th Legislative session. Senate Minority Leader Troy Heinert says too many bills are being killed and revived.

Heinert believes the legislative system is being abused.

Joining the leadership at their weekly press conference were Representatives Ryan Cwach and Erin Healy. Both had bills that Healy thought were sent to the wrong committee.

Heinert says lawmakers need to be held accountable for the 40 days they are in session.
