The Honorable Matt Michels
President of the Senate
500 East Capitol Avenue
Pierre, SD 57501-5070
Dear Mr. President and Members of the Senate:
I respectfully return Senate Bill 194 with the following recommendations as to STYLE and FORM.
Senate Bill 194 is entitled, "An Act to make an appropriation to fund tax refunds for elderly persons
and persons with a disability, to revise the income eligibility requirements for property tax and sales
tax refunds, and to declare an emergency."
Section 7 amended the maximum multi-member household income in two places to "thirteen
two seven hundred fifty dollars." The first is found on page 4, line 17 and the second is on
page 4, line 20 of the Senate Bill.
The bill failed to make that same change in a third place. On page 4, lines 18-19 of the Senate Bill,
the maximum household income is described as "thirteen thousand two hundred fifty dollars."
This problem can be solved by making the following style and form correction to the Senate Bill as
follows: On page 4, line 19, delete "two" and in its place insert "seven."
I respectfully request you concur with my recommendations as to style and form.
