Some 2013 South Dakota laws well rooted after first year

Posted: Updated:
South Dakota's laws passed in 2013 have been on the books for one year and some are making more of an impact on the state than others.
    
Bipartisan initiatives on public safety and economic development have launched. And while state officials are ready to support a policy allowing armed staff in schools, no schools have pursed that option in its first year.
    
Special courts have expanded across the state in line with the Public Safety Improvement Act. The initiative strives to reduce the prison population. The state's first veteran's court opens next Monday. And cooperative parolees can reduce their time on parole with every day of good behavior.
    
The Building South Dakota has provided millions of dollars in grants and loans to support housing and economic development needs across the state.
