PIERRE — “Justice re-investment” was the slogan Gov. Dennis Daugaard used Tuesday, as he urged the Legislature to support reforms intended to slow South Dakota’s rate of imprisonment. Today, lawmakers will get further explanation from Chief Justice David Gilbertson, as he takes his turn making the case for reforms that have worked in other states.

With their unusual one-two message, which calls for more non-violent felons to get help for addictions while serving time in their communities under close scrutiny rather than behind bars, Daugaard and Gilbertson are making clear to the Legislature from the start what they believe needs attention foremost this year.
