Brand Board bill clears committee hurdle

PIERRE, S.D. (AP)--A committee has sent to the South Dakota House floor a bill that would make members of the state Brand Board be subject to Senate confirmation and set up reporting requirements that supporters say will improve accountability.

The bill, SB105, passed the House Agriculture and Natural Resources Committee 12 to 1 Feb. 24.

The measure would make the board provide an annual report to the agriculture and the government operations and audit committees of both legislative chambers. The report would list the number of livestock inspected during the previous year, the amount of money collected, an accounting of the money owners received for livestock when the ownership of the animals could not be immediately determined and other considerations.

In May, the state Brand Board took over inspection from the South Dakota Stockgrowers Association.
