UPDATE: Senate lawmakers voted to pass House Bill 1199. The bill now moves to Gov. Noem's desk.
House Bill 1199 would establish the Office of Liaison for Missing and Murdered Indigenous Persons (MMIP) to assist with and provide training for locating missing or murdered indigenous persons.
We support House Bill 1199 because it would be a vital tool to direct resources and attention toward the MMIP crisis in South Dakota.
