Plan to Change State Constitution

Some South Dakota are hoping to close the state school for the deaf. Senator Al Novstrup of Aberdeen has filed a resolution that would put the issue to a statewide vote this November. If approved, the resolution would remove references to the school from the responsibilities of the state Board of Regents in the South Dakota Constitution. That would clear the way for the legislature to close the school, something that was proposed by Governor Mike Rounds last year to save money.
