Lawmakers Take up Municipal Sales Taxes and Autism Coverage
PIERRE, S.D. (AP) — Lawmakers plan to consider this week measures on municipal sales taxes, insurance coverage for Autism Spectrum Disorder therapy and athletics policy for transgender students.
A measure to allow municipalities to collect up to an additional 1 percent sales tax for capital expenditures is set to be heard Friday in the House State Affairs Committee.
The House State Affairs Committee on Wednesday is expected to take up a measure that would help ensure insurance coverage for a type of Autism Spectrum Disorder therapy.
A proposal to void a High School Activities Association policy on transgender students is set to be considered in the Senate Education Committee on Tuesday. The policy requires the association to review requests by transgender students or their guardians to decide on which team the student can participate.
