Text Search




Enter the text to search for and click Search to get a list of statutes containing the text you entered. Tips:
  • Multiple words will be searched as a phrase. Entering Property Tax will return statutes that contain the complete phrase Property Tax.
  • Logical Operators are allowed. Hunting and Fishing will return statutes that containing both hunting and fishing. Hunting or Fishing will return statutes that contain hunting, fishing, or both.
  • Wild cards(*) are allowed. Entering Approp* will return statutes that contain Appropriation, Appropriate, Appropriated, etc..
  • Punctuation can also be used as operators. + = and, , = or. Searching for phrases that have , and will result in error unless you enclose the entire phrase in quotes.
The Filter option allows you to narrow your search results to a specific Title or Chapter. Here is a tip for using the filter option.
  • Use a dash (-) as the last character of your filter to refine searches. For example the filter "1-1" returns sections in 1-1, 1-10, 1-11, 1-12, etc. The filter "1-1-" returns only sections in Chapter 1-1.

     49-45-9.   Bond requirements--Violation as misdemeanor--Amount. Before any grain buyer license is issued by the commission, the applicant shall file with the commission a bond conditioned to secure the faithful performance of the applicant's obligations as a grain buyer and full and unreserved compliance with the laws of this state and the rules of the commission, relating to the purchase of grain by the grain buyer. The bond is for the specific purpose of protecting persons selling grain to the grain buyer. However, the bond may not benefit any person entering into a voluntary credit sale with a grain buyer.

     The amount of the bond for a Class A or Class B grain buyer's license shall be based on a rolling average of the dollar amount of grain purchased by the applicant in South Dakota during the last three calendar years. For a new grain buyer, the first year's bond shall be based on projected purchases. For a grain buyer with less than three years experience as a grain buyer, the bond shall be based on the average actual purchases made by the grain buyer in all of its previous years as a grain buyer. The bond applies to all grain purchases for all of the grain buyer's business locations.
