When Brenda Lanphere and Beth Smith met five years ago, the two Aberdeen residents were already active AARP volunteers. But the women knew they could achieve even more together and quickly got to work.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Next Tuesday morning, we will be sending out an action alert allowing you to thank South Dakota legislators for passing bills designed to improve long-term care services and supports in the state. With our other action alerts, we have asked legislators for a specific vote on a bill, so this will be a great opportunity to express appreciation for their service and for taking actions to help improve options for South Dakotans as they age.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Before we get to our update on what happened in Pierre, this week, we want you to be watching for another email coming from us soon on the House State Affairs Committee Hearing on SJR501. As a reminder, this is the resolution that would place a measure on the November ballot related to work reporting requirements for some individuals eligible under Medicaid expansion. When you see that action alert email, please take a moment to send a message to committee members urging them to respect the will of the voters who passed Medicaid expansion and vote NO on SJR 501.
As the President’s Day holiday approaches, the action in the legislature will be fast and furious for the next few weeks!
With Week 5 in the books, we have reached the halfway point of the 2024 South Dakota legislative session. Here are the bills we are working on for you.
