Study Committee on Regional Jails to be in Sioux Falls later this month

YANKTON, S.D.(WNAX)- A summer study committee of the South Dakota legislature looking at jail options for counties will be on the road this month.

Senator Art Rusch of Vermillion says Clay County would be a good place to start.

The Clay County Commission voted to authorize a forty-two million dollar bond issue for a new jail and law enforcement center.

Rusch says the legislature has made some efforts to help counties.

Rusch says he needs to see more details of the Clay County plans.

The “Study Committee on Regional Jails and State Correctional Plans”  is scheduled to be in Sioux Falls on August twenty second.
