BE IT ENACTED BY THE LEGISLATURE OF THE STATE OF SOUTH DAKOTA:
     Section 1.  That chapter 2-14 be amended by adding thereto a NEW SECTION to read as follows:
     Whenever a statute delegates quasi-legislative authority to an administrative agency to carry out legislative objectives by promulgating an administrative rule pursuant to chapter 1-26, the statute shall provide an intelligible standard to guide the agency in the exercise of the delegated legislative authority. Any statute that delegates an absolute, unregulated, or undefined discretion to an administrative agency is considered to be an unlawful delegation of legislative authority.
