SDARWS LEGISLATIVE ACTIVITIES

LOBBYING

South Dakota Rural Water is the only water and wastewater association monitoring legislation in both Pierre and Washington, DC. We register a lobbyist each year during the state Legislative Session. The Association monitors all bills affecting municipalities, rural water and wastewater systems. Our lobbyist can be found in Pierre during the entire session and is prepared to activate our legislative network on issues that affect our industry.

 

We have partnered with the Riter, Rogers, Wattier & Northrup, LLP. Law Firm located in Pierre, SD.

 

The firm has provided lobbying services before the South Dakota legislature for national, regional and statewide entities for over seventy years. This representation includes drafting of proposed legislation, active engagement in planning of legislation strategies, individual contacts with legislators, representatives of the administration, and political party officials, as well as preparation for and participation of testimony before committees and solicitation of support on legislative issues.

 

Riter/Rogers' location in Pierre and its experience within the legislative body and the legislative halls, makes the firm particularly adept at efficiently representing a broad spectrum of clients on legislative matters.

 

The firm has been successful in assisting legislative clients in successfully capturing the pertinent points of issues involved in proposed legislation, and preparing presentations which will allow legislators to understand the perspectives important to the firm’s clients.
