HB1075 defered to the 41st day

PIERRE, S.D.(WNAX)- A bill that would have cut the sales tax on groceries hit the wall in the South Dakota House Appropriations Committee Tuesday.

It was the centerpiece of the reelection campaign of Governor Kristi Noem last fall. She spoke to the committee in support of the bill.

Representative Linda Duba of Sioux Falls said she would have preferred tax cuts over time.

Committee Chairman, Representative Mike Derby of Rapid City, said the republican caucus did not support the bill.

The motion to send the bill to the forty first day passed on a vote of eight to one with Representative John Mills the only one opposing it.

The South Dakota House attempt to smoke out HB1075 but that was not supported which officially killed the bill.
