SB41 clears the South Dakota Senate

PIERRE, S.D.(KCCR)- The South Dakota Senate has approved a bill that sets up use of 200-million dollars in funding to develop housing infrastructure.  Senator Jack Kolbeck was a member of a summer study in workforce housing two years ago that put the basis of the bill together.

Senator Tom Pischke rose in opposition to the bill.

Also in support of Senate Bill 41 was Democratic Senator Renold Nesiba who offered his thanks to the President for making the housing bill possible.

The bill moves to the House on a 29 to two vote with four Senators excused.
