Legislation requiring South Dakota newspapers to post all legal notices to an all-inclusive website was hailed as a step forward for government transparency. On Thursday, Jan. 20, the bill, HB1075, was unanimously approved by the House Local Government Committee.
The bill requires all newspapers to post public notices to a website, sdpublicnotices.com, maintained by the South Dakota Newspaper Association. Newspapers must maintain a prominent link to the site on their websites or provide a link to the information that is accessible and free to the public.
