The 2015 legislative session kicked off on Tuesday (Jan. 13) and ASBSD has you covered for coverage of the daily occurrences in the legislature.
Three ASBSD resources will help you keep up-to-date on the 90th legislative session and informed about
The ASBSD Bill Tracker system provides you with a list of each piece of legislation the Association is tracking during session. To access the Bill Tracker page, click the “Bill Tracker” link at the top of ASBSD’s homepage.
Bill Tracker provides the bill number (hyperlinked to its webpage on the South Dakota legislative website), a brief summary of the bill, ASBSD’s position on the bill, its current location in the legislature and the last date of update to the bill or resolution.
By clicking on any of the headers – Bill Number, ASBSD Summary, Position, Current Location or Date of last update – you can sort the bills listed. For example, if you want to know which bills ASBSD is supporting, monitoring or opposing, click the “Position” header.
The Bill Tracker page will be updated daily as bills are passed or killed and move from committees to the Senate or House floor.
Download the “Navigating ASBSD’s Bill Tracker” guide here.
Bill Tracker provides a snap shot of session, while the ASBSD Blog provides the details of it.
Updated routinely during session, the Blog will read like a newspaper story with accounts and recaps of committee meetings, floor votes and any other legislative action related to K-12 education.
You can access the Blog by clicking the link found at the top of the homepage. The most recent blog posts can be found near the middle of the home page under the “Latest News” heading.
The final ASBSD legislative resource is the “2015 Legislative Session Documents” list, which can be found on the Publication and Forms page.
Documents will come from ASBSD, SASD, Department of Education (DOE), Bureau of Finance and Management (BFM) and other resources. If you’re looking for specific information about your district or from districts around the state you can find that information in the “2015 Legislative Session Documents” list.
One such document is the “Navigating the South Dakota Legislature website” guide, which you can download here.
Each tool is designed to help you stay up-to-date on the latest from legislative session, as well as reference when you’re advocating to your area legislators or discussing issues with your fellow board members or people from your community.
