LEGISLATIVE OVERVIEW / HOW SDTA WORKS FOR YOU
Over the years, the government’s view of the trucking industry has shifted with changing administrations, both in Pierre and Washington, D.C. The one constant for trucking industry members across the state is SDTA’s active role in representing industry concerns. The SDTA is involved at every level of government to create a more level playing field for the trucking industry.
In 1935, the South Dakota Trucking Association (SDTA) was formed by a small group of truckers with a primary purpose to advocate on behalf for the trucking industry at the state legislature.
Through attending conferences and agency meetings, as well as monitoring alerts, the SDTA stays on top of rulemaking and major policy changes at the state and federal levels — then communicates the impact of these changes to the membership as soon as the changes are known.

The SDTA staff closely works with the Division of Motor Vehicles on issues that surface across the state. Issues include road postings in various counties.
