SD Attorney General Releases Proposed Bills And Amendments

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) — Meth makers, sex traffickers and financial scammers are among the targets of legislation proposed by South Dakota’s attorney general for the upcoming session.

Marty Jackley on Monday released proposed bills or amendments in six areas.

One would give state judges the option of requiring people to forfeit computers, vehicles or other property if they’re convicted of child pornography or human trafficking.

Another measure would allow pharmacies to report electronically in real-time the sale of drugs used to make meth. Now they fill out paperwork.

Republican Senator Craig Tieszen of Rapid City chairs the Senate Judiciary Committee and says the electronic records proposal is a good idea.

But he says he needs more information on the forfeiture proposal before commenting on its merits.
