PIERRE, S.D. (AP) - The 2015 South Dakota legislative session has officially come to an end as the state House and Senate gaveled out at the close of “Veto Day.”

Lawmakers considered three gubernatorial vetoes Monday, and the Legislature voted to override Gov. Dennis Daugaard’s objection to a measure that would slightly reduce the amount of tax burden on rural electric companies.

In the session’s main run, the Legislature passed funding hikes for roads and bridges, an overhaul of the juvenile justice system and a $4.3 billion state budget.

The 38-day 91st legislative session will begin on Jan. 12, 2016, and run until March 29.

Smaller groups of lawmakers will meet over the summer to study problems that they want to address during the upcoming legislative session.
