Social Host Bill Updates
1. February 04, 2013 - Social Host Bill Defeated Again
2. February 02, 2013 - Charges dismissed against former Harrisburg School
3. January 28, 2013 - Sen. Lucas has introduced a new social host bill - this time,
without the term "social host". Paul Bachand, SD States Attorneys Association helped
draft the bill. It is actually quite similar to the current nuisance law, but Paul and
Sen. Lucas feel that this bill's wording will address the loopholes in the nuisance law.
Sen. Lucas got 39 co-sponsors for this bill - he said it took him just a couple of hours on
Friday afternoon to get that much support!!

EMPOWER Coalition of the Southern Hills (ECOSH) is a rapidly growing community prevention coalition. Over the past two years we
have grown into a broad-based, grassroots coalition and are expanding our prevention efforts thoughout the Southern Hills.
Every community, no matter where it is located, has its own specific set of issues and problems and we are no different. The nature
of the problems vary from place to place, such as one community may be thriving economically versus another that desperately needs
low-income housing. While the issues may change, the need to deal with them remains the same. ECOSH was founded to unite community strengths/resources and bring together to solve community problems.
