and thus south dakota legislature will have some thing new when they meet for the next term mostly some new body in the seat that is held by senator hinkley who due to his views including gay marriage wound up causing controversy which put the state into a bad light from time to time. plus also wound up with ann bosworth charged with lieing that he witness all his petition signatures on his ballot though he is working on  a ballot initive to cap pay day loan rates. other wise the legislature will have less controversy till another senator causes some. as citing he has an oppurtunity to do some studying over seas. senator hinkley has called it quits and resigned his seat which means governor daugard will be appointing some one to fill his term now. and also the south dakota legislature may wind up not getting in the news due to some stupid bill sponsored by hinkley and his views on some issues.


and while there is debate going on over another pipeline in south dakota being built in south dakota . the old keystone pipeline is not forgotten as senator rounds is saying now that the senate will proably finaly be voting on the thing some time soon. which was a given once repubs took the senate unless the dems stop it. plus the fact that the state dep has yet to rule on it . not to mention the bill will be another veto from the president. which should be interesting that one of rounds votes as a south dakota senator is  not only over a controversial thing keystone pipeline. but also is set up for a veto which congress does not have enough to override.
