PIERRE, S.D. (AP) - State Sen. Stace Nelson says he plans to step down next month following what he describes as the most frustrating year of his service in the Legislature.

The Fulton Republican says he’s retiring Dec. 10 due to his health and his desire to spend more time with his family. Nelson, an outspoken member of the Legislature, is serving his second term representing District 19. He previously served two terms in the House.

He says he can’t put into “polite words” the frustration he has had with state officials over flooding this year.
