Travel records for legislator Hawaii trip might not be available until April
A dozen lawmakers attended national conference, including two who are leaving office
The travel records of South Dakota lawmakers who travel out of state on the taxpayer dime are considered public records.
But the records of a dozen lawmakers who went to Hawaii this month might not be made public until April 24.
That’s the timeline established by the director of the Legislative Research Council to a request from The Dakota Scout. The Scout was attempting to confirm the identities of the lawmakers who went to the national conference of the Council of State Governments, which took place Dec. 7-10 in Honolulu. The cost of airfare and hotels were also requested.
