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.

     5-29-5.   Lands subject to school and public lands trust. If any lands used for purposes of a research park are determined to be subject to the school and public lands trust established pursuant to S.D. Const., Art. VIII, § 7, then:
             (1)      A civil, state, religious, or public organization seeking to develop and to operate a research park may make application to the commissioner of school and public lands for conveyance pursuant to § 5-9-34. If the Board of Regents agrees to transfer possession of the land, the commissioner may convey defeasible title as provided in § 5-9-35 for the purpose of operating a research park. Upon any reversion, the land shall once again be placed under the control of the Board of Regents as part of the campus from which it was originally severed; or
             (2)      The Board of Regents may select other lands under its control of equal value, as determined by the commissioner of school and public lands, and exchange such other lands for those comprising the research park in order to maintain the principal of the school and public lands trust.
