PIERRE, S.D.(WNAX)- The Joint Legislative Procedure Committee of the South Dakota legislature has proposed a thirty-eight-day session for 2022.

The committee looked at 38, 39- and 40-day possibilities for next year.

Representative Caleb Finck of Tripp proposed a session with mostly four day weeks.

Senator Lee Schoenbeck says he talked to many members about their preferences.

House Majority Leader Kent Peterson of Salem says the thirty eight day version would be workable.

The plan would have the session open on Tuesday, January 11th and wrap up the main run on March 10th. Veto day would be March 28th.

The proposal will now go to the House and Senate for approval.
