The South Dakota Legislature has now finished the fifth week of our legislative session with a four day weekend as a result of the President’s day holiday. There was an on-line cracker barrel on Feb. 13 sponsored by the Vermillion Area Chamber and Development Company. Our two District 17 Representatives, Sydney Davis and Richard Vasgaard, also participated in the virtual cracker-barrel.
One of the topics that seemed to be of particular interest to the participants was where the state was headed with medical and recreational marijuana. There will be another virtual cracker-barrel sponsored by the VCDC on Feb. 27 and a live cracker barrel in Parker on the afternoon of Feb. 27.
