Conflicts of Interest Disclosure Requirements 

All South Dakota state government boards and commissions are subject to the conflicts of interest disclosure requirements contained in Chapter 3-23 of the South Dakota Codified Laws. The GFP Commission will comply with the requirements of this law by following a procedure for the conflict of interest disclosure. At the beginning of each GFP Commission meeting, the chair reads paragraphs 1-5 and asks if any commissioner has a conflict that needs to be disclosed. If any commissioner discloses conflict, the chair will finish reading paragraphs 5-9. Then the Commission will consider and act upon the conflict.
