    SCR 12 Introduced by: Senators Novstrup, Ewing, Frerichs, Heinert, Kennedy, Maher, and Nesiba and Representatives Ahlers, Anderson, Bartling, Greenfield (Lana), Hunhoff, Lust, Rasmussen, and Tieszen

        A CONCURRENT RESOLUTION, Expressing support for the continuation of the Perkins Loan Program and urging Congress to take immediate action to permanently reauthorize the program, in its entirety and in its original form.

    WHEREAS, the Perkins Loan Program is the nation's oldest federal student loan program, created in 1958 as the National Defense Student Loan Program and later called the National Direct Loan Program; and

    WHEREAS, Perkins loans are efficient, need-based, low-interest loans that serve 3,137 high-need, low-income college students at thirteen colleges and universities in South Dakota and 500,000 students at 1,500 colleges and universities in the United States each year; and

    WHEREAS, Perkins loans have favorable terms for students; for example, interest is not charged while students are in school, the interest rate is low and fixed, and borrowers may have all or part of their Perkins loans cancelled if they undertake certain public service jobs for one to five years; and

    WHEREAS, participating schools share the risk of the Perkins Loan Program because they provide a one-third match to federal capital contributions, and loans are made using funds repaid by previous borrowers; and

    WHEREAS, Perkins loans feature the human touch of campus-based servicing, which allows on-campus administrators to provide Perkins borrowers with one-on-one service; and

    WHEREAS, Perkins loans have made higher education possible for millions of Americans; and

    WHEREAS, the Perkins Loan Program fosters access to post-secondary education for low-income students during a period of declining grant availability; and

    WHEREAS, without Perkins loans, thousands of Americans will lose the chance at higher education and a better life; and

    WHEREAS, there is no replacement for Perkins loans:

    NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, by the Senate of the Ninety-Second Legislature of the State of South Dakota, the House of Representatives concurring therein, that the Legislature strongly supports the continuation of the Perkins Loan Program and urges Congress to reauthorize the program in its entirety and original form, in order to provide educational opportunities to future generations of students who need low-cost financing to make their dreams of higher education possible.

    29A-5-403. A guardian of a protected person shall file a report with the court within sixty days following the first anniversary of the appointment and:

            (1)    At least annually thereafter;

            (2)    When the court orders additional reports to be filed;

            (3)    When the guardian resigns or is removed; and

            (4)    When the guardianship is terminated, unless the court determines that there is then no need therefor.

    A guardian may elect to file a periodic report on a calendar-year basis. However, in no event may such a report cover a period of more than one year. A calendar-year report shall be filed with the court no later than April fifteenth of the succeeding year.

    A report shall briefly state:

            (1)    The current mental, physical, and social condition of the protected person;

            (2)    The living arrangements during the reporting period;

            (3)    The medical, educational, vocational, and other professional services provided to the protected person and the guardian's opinion as to the adequacy of the protected person's care;

            (4)    A summary of the guardian's visits with and activities on the protected person's behalf;

            (5)    If the protected person is institutionalized, whether the guardian agrees with the current treatment or habilitation plan;

            (6)    A recommendation as to the need for continued guardianship and any recommended changes in the scope of the guardianship;

            (7)    Any other information requested by the court or useful in the opinion of the guardian; and

            (8)    The compensation requested and the reasonable and necessary expenses incurred by the guardian.

    A guardian shall mail a copy of the report to the individuals and entities specified in § 29A-5-410 no later than fourteen days following its filing.

    Any interested person may request a hearing on the report. The court may order the guardian to attend the hearing on the report on the court's own motion or on the petition of any interested person. A report of the guardian may be incorporated into and made a part of the accounting of the conservator.
    If, during the period intervening any annual report required under this section, there is a material adverse change in the medical condition of the minor or protected person that requires hospitalization or a change in residency that is more than a temporary change, unless otherwise ordered by the court, the guardian shall file a report with the court describing any change in medical condition or change in residency and provide reasonable and timely notice of any change in medical condition or change in residency to the individuals or entities specified in § 29A-5-410. For purposes of this section, reasonable and timely notice means any appropriate method of notice to be selected by the guardian that includes written notice no later than fourteen days following the date on which the guardian learns of the material change.
