Kennedy to introduce bills for drug offenses

YANKTON, S.D. (WNAX) – Now moving into the third week of the 2020 session, South Dakota lawmakers have until the end of the week for unlimited bill introductions.

Senator Craig Kennedy of Yankton says he has some bills dealing with drug offenses.

Kennedy says he wants legislators to look at alternatives to prison for drug offenders.

Kennedy says the big question will be how to pay for either more corrections or treatment options.
