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.

1-26-8.1Retroactive effect of acts prohibiting certain rules--Repealed or unconstitutional statutes--Effect of transfer of rule-making authority to another agency.

If an act is passed by the Legislature which prohibits an agency from passing rules relating to a certain subject, any prior rule promulgated by that agency relating to that subject shall become void on the effective date of the act.

If a statute which authorizes an agency to pass a rule is repealed, or declared unconstitutional by the South Dakota or United States Supreme Court, any rule which was authorized by that statute is void unless there is another valid statute which also authorized the agency to pass that rule. If an agency's authority to adopt rules is transferred to another agency, and no provision is specified for the disposition of the first agency's rules in the legislation or executive order which made the transfer, the rules of the first agency shall be the rules of the second agency until they are amended or repealed.
