South Dakota lawmakers have canceled their work next Tuesday and Wednesday to honor and commemorate former Gov. Bill Janklow.
Janklow, who died Thursday, will lie in state in the Capitol rotunda on Tuesday morning, followed by a memorial service.
On Wednesday, a funeral service will be held for Janklow in Sioux Falls. Many lawmakers and lobbyists and state officials plan to attend.
House Majority Leader David Lust said there are currently no plans to make up the canceled days later in the session.
You have free articles remaining.
Instead, the planned 35-day session will use 33 days.
Lawmakers will work later in the afternoon and hold committee meetings in the afternoon and evening.
If more time becomes necessary, Lust said legislators could hold session on several Fridays in the next six weeks when they are currently not scheduled to meet.
The Legislature's deadlines for bill filing will all be pushed back two days. Lawmakers will now have until Jan. 26 to file bills.
