SD panel disagrees on health reform critique

Posted: Updated:

PIERRE, S.D. (AP) - South Dakota lawmakers have held what some call the first negotiating committee meeting to address a resolution that expresses the will of the Legislature but has no force of law.

Rep. Stace Nelson of Fulton sponsored a resolution expressing the Legislature's opposition to President Barack Obama's health care reform law. But he objected to the Senate's decision to take out language listing ways the state has complied with the Affordable Care Act.

The House and Senate then appointed negotiators to work out differences in the two chambers' versions. The committee was unable to reach agreement and sent the measure back to the House and Senate with no recommendation, a move likely to kill the resolution.

Nelson, who is seeking the Republican nomination for U.S. Senate, says the resolution is important.
