A bill which would allow people with enhanced conceal carry permits to carry their weapon in the state capital has passed the house and is on its way to Governor Kristi Noem’s desk.  The house voted 44-19 in favor of the legislation Monday.  The bill would require those seeking to carry their weapon in the capital that they notify security before doing so.  This legislation would not cover the Supreme Court chamber or private officers that have controlled access such as the governor’s office.  Capital security is provided by the South Dakota Highway Patrol who has come out against this legislation.  According to the Secretary of State’s office, 1,615 enhanced conceal carry permits were issued last year.
