From the desk of the President...
With the hustle of the holidays behind us, 2019 is here, and as you may be aware, the legislative session has begun. The annual hog roast was a great success with approximately 90 legislators in attendance for food and conversation; it’s always a great time to visit with them face to face as the session begins.
With a new governor and new legislators, there are a few bills trickling in, so currently there is not a lot to report related to gaming or liquor. As your representatives, we are continually monitoring and communicating the best interest of our industries. Weekly conference calls with the board members and Matt Krogman, our lobbyist, are effective.
This is a perfect time to not just be a member, but participate as a member of the SD-LBDGA committee and recruit others and to help us maintain and continue to develop the lottery and liquor industries in SD. We feel that your experience and your involvement would make you a valuable member of SD-LBDGA, and we are looking for your input as we continue to shape our industries moving forward.
