You have read and heard the headlines associated with methamphetamine in South Dakota:

"Epidemic proportions...Alarming statistics about meth...Record breaking meth arrests"

Lawmakers are about to take another run at it.

Attorney General Marty Jackley will ask South Dakota lawmakers to impose harsher penalties for methamphetamine dealing and manufacturing, require disclosure of data breaches to affected state residents and change human trafficking laws.

Jackley will unveil his priorities Wednesday for the upcoming 2018 legislative session, which starts next week and runs until late March.

The bills would also clarify sex offender registration requirements and enact tougher consequences for drug dealers whose product kills another person.
