Regardless whether you support or oppose the school-sentinels bill passed by the state House of Representatives this afternoon, it’s worth acknowledging that freshman lawmaker Scott Craig handled himself well in the debate. Craig, R-Rapid City, is prime sponsor of the measure, HB 1087. Craig is a 48-year-old pastor. He gave a good initial speech explaining the bill to House members and he didn’t flinch under questioning. He is prime sponsor of two other bills this legislative session. HB 1177 would make it a felony for failure to return within 48 hours of the contracted time any leased or rented personal property of more than $1,500 in worth. His third bill is HB 1232, which make a felony the attempted hiring of a person under age 18 for a sexual act. Both of those bills are assigned to the House Judiciary Committee, and hearings haven’t been scheduled yet on them.
