NOTE TO READERS: As part of this newspaper’s coverage of the 2013 legislative session, we’ll be providing on most days a list of 10 pieces of information helpful to understanding what is – and sometimes isn’t – happening at the state Capitol during the session’s three-month run.

When does session start and why? It opens this year on Tuesday, the same as every other year since 1889 statehood. That’s because the South Dakota Constitution says so in Article III, Section 7: “The Legislature shall meet at the seat of government on the second Tuesday of January at 12 o’clock m. and at no other time except as provided by this Constitution.”
