    Which motion prevailed.

    SCR 2 Introduced by: Senators Jensen, Begalka, Curd, Krebs, Lederman, Maher, Monroe, and Omdahl and Representatives May, Anderson, Bolin, Campbell, Ecklund, Haggar (Don), Haggar (Jenna), Hoffman, Kaiser, Kopp, Latterell, Nelson, Olson (Betty), Qualm, Russell, Schaefer, Stalzer, Steele, and Wick

        A CONCURRENT RESOLUTION, Expressing concern relating to the Common Core State Standards.

    WHEREAS, the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) are a set of academic standards, promoted and supported by two private membership organizations, the National Governor's Association (NGA) and the Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO), as a method that

requires American students to conform to uniform, one size fits all, achievement goals to make them more competitive in a global marketplace; and

    WHEREAS, the NGA and the CCSSO received tens of millions of dollars from private third parties to advocate for and develop the CCSS strategy and subsequently created the CCSS through a process that was not subject to any freedom of information acts or other sunshine laws; and

    WHEREAS, even though federal law prohibits the federalizing of curriculum, the Obama Administration accepted the CCSS plan and used 2009 Stimulus Bill money to reward the states that were most committed to the president's CCSS agenda, but they failed to give states, their legislatures, and their citizens time to evaluate the CCSS before having to commit to them; and

    WHEREAS, the NGA and CCSSO in concert with the same corporations developing the CCSS assessments have created new textbooks, digital media, and other teaching materials aligned to the standards, which must be purchased and adopted by local school districts in order that students may effectively compete on CCSS assessments; and

    WHEREAS, the CCSS program includes federally funded testing and the collection and sharing of massive amounts of personal student and teacher data; and

    WHEREAS, the CCSS effectively removes educational choice and competition since all schools and all districts must use Common Core assessments based on the Common Core standards to allow all students to advance in the school system and to advance to higher education pursuits:

    NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, by the Senate of the Eighty-Ninth Legislature of the State of South Dakota, the House of Representatives concurring therein, that the South Dakota Legislature does not believe in a one size fits all approach to education and supports providing broad education choices to parents and children at the state and local level, which is best based on a free market approach to education for students to achieve individual excellence; and

    BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that the Legislature recognizes the CCSS for what it is, an inappropriate overreach to standardize and control the education of our children so they will conform to a preconceived normal; and

    BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that the Legislature rejects the collection of personal student data for any noneducational purpose without the prior written consent of an adult student or a child student's parent, and that it rejects the sharing of such personal data, without the prior written consent of an adult student or a child student's parent, with any person or entity other than schools or education agencies within the state; and

    BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that the Legislature recognizes the need to repeal the numerous federal regulations that interfere with state and local control of public schools. Therefore, the Legislature rejects this CCSS plan which creates and fits the country with a nationwide straitjacket on academic freedom and achievement.

    Was read the first time and referred to the Committee on Education.

    HCR 1015: A CONCURRENT RESOLUTION, In support of protecting American sovereignty and defending individual second amendment rights from United Nations interference.

    Was read the first time, the President waived the referral to committee, and placed HCR 1015 on the calendar of Wednesday, February 12, the 19th legislative day.

    SCR 3 Introduced by: Senators Peters, Brown, Frerichs, Heineman (Phyllis), Jones (Tom), Krebs, Lucas, Maher, Novstrup (Al), Otten (Ernie), Rave, Solano, Sutton, Tidemann, Van Gerpen, and White and Representatives Cronin, Bolin, Carson, Dryden, Gosch, Greenfield, Haggar (Don), Hawley, Hoffman, Lust, Mickelson, Novstrup (David), Ring, Romkema, Werner, Westra, Wick, and Wismer

        A CONCURRENT RESOLUTION, Urging the members of the South Dakota Congressional delegation to sponsor and support the Marketplace Fairness Act, or similar legislation that would grant the states authority to collect sales and use tax on remote sales.

    WHEREAS, the 1967 Bellas Hess and the 1992 Quill Supreme Court decisions denied states the authority to require the collection of sales and use taxes by businesses that have no physical presence in the taxing state; and

    WHEREAS, the ability of consumers to make purchases from remote sellers that have no physical presence has become significantly more accessible via the internet, and the sales tax base is eroding as consumers are altering their purchasing habits; and

    WHEREAS, the constraints imposed by the Supreme Court's decisions threaten the future viability of the sales tax as a revenue source for state and local governments in this changing market for consumer goods and services; and

    WHEREAS, the federal government continues to shift program and financial responsibilities to the states, but the inaction of Congress to permit states to require sales and use tax collection on remote sales limits the states' ability to raise revenues for the funding of such programs from one of the major state revenue sources; and

    WHEREAS, if Congress were to act on this matter, it would provide fiscal relief for the states without costing the federal government a single cent or otherwise affect the federal budget; and

    WHEREAS, the Streamlined Sales and Use Tax Agreement provided the states with one viable blueprint to create a simplified and more uniform sales and use tax collection system. The states and the business community have worked for over ten years to simplify state and local sales and use tax systems by establishing common definitions, sourcing rules, and other factors to provide a streamlined system for the twenty-first century; and

    WHEREAS, the Legislature of South Dakota and our colleagues in the other states have shown the resolve to acknowledge the complexities of the current sales and use tax collection system, have worked with the business community to formulate a truly simplified and streamlined collection system, and have shown the political will to enact the necessary changes to make the streamlined collection system the law; and

    WHEREAS, as of February 2014, twenty-four states, Arkansas, Georgia, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Michigan, Minnesota, Nebraska, Nevada, New Jersey, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Rhode Island, South Dakota, Tennessee, Utah, Vermont, Washington, West Virginia, Wisconsin, and Wyoming, have enacted legislation to bring their states' sales and use tax statutes into compliance with the Agreement; and

    WHEREAS, the Center for Business and Economic Research at the University of Tennessee estimated that South Dakota lost over $60.8 million in 2012 and that state and local governments nationally lost over $23 billion in 2012 because they were not able to collect taxes on remote sales; and

    WHEREAS, the Marketplace Fairness Act grants states that comply with the agreement the authority to require sellers, regardless of nexus, to collect those states' sales and use taxes; and

    WHEREAS, the Marketplace Fairness Act for the first time would provide a comprehensive national solution to the sales tax collection by permitting states that are unable to join the agreement to enact sales and use tax simplifications and be granted authority to require collection of taxes on remote sales, thereby removing the potential for competitive advantage among the states; and

    WHEREAS, the Marketplace Fairness Act will create fair market competition between traditional and online only retailers which will enable South Dakota businesses to grow and expand resulting in more jobs and continued economic growth for South Dakota; and

    WHEREAS, the Marketplace Fairness Act will allow South Dakota small businesses to compete fairly in order to sustain and increase the fifty-two thousand retail jobs throughout the state; and

    WHEREAS, the United States Senate understands the importance of the Marketplace Fairness Act to main street retailers and to state and local governments and overwhelmingly passed it on May 6, 20l3, 69-27; and

    WHEREAS, until Congress and the President enact legislation to permit states to require collection of tax on remote sales, participation by remote sellers will only ever be voluntary making it unlikely that the states will close the sales and use tax gap between what is owed on remote transactions and what is collected:

    NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, by the Senate of the Eighty-Ninth Legislature of the State of South Dakota, the House of Representatives concurring therein, that the Legislature of South Dakota calls upon the members of our congressional delegation, Senators Tim Johnson and John Thune, and Representative Kristi Noem to support the Marketplace Fairness Act; and

    BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that the Legislature of South Dakota expresses its appreciation and gratitude to Senators Tim Johnson and John Thune for supporting and passing the Marketplace Fairness Act in the United States Senate and to Representative Kristi Noem for cosponsoring the Marketplace Fairness Act in the House of Representatives; and

    BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that the Legislature of South Dakota urges President Barack Obama to sign into law legislation granting the states authority to collect sales and use tax on remote sales, upon its passage by the Congress.

    Was read the first time, the President waived the referral to committee, and placed SCR 3 on the calendar of Wednesday, February 12, the 19th legislative day.

    HCR 1013: A CONCURRENT RESOLUTION, Commemorating the 200th anniversary of the War of 1812 and "The Star Spangled Banner", and recognizing the historical significance, heroic human endeavor, and sacrifices of members of the United States Army, Marine Corps, Navy, Revenue Marine Service, and state militias, during and since the War of 1812.

    Was read the second time.

    Sen. Welke moved that the Senate do concur in HCR 1013 as found on page 308 of the House Journal.

    The question being on Sen. Welke's motion that HCR 1013 be concurred in.
