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.
