South Dakota lawmakers have adjourned to end this year's legislative session after failing to override Gov. Dennis Daugaard's veto of a bill increasing the fee imposed to finance the state's inspection of commercial fertilizer.
The fee increase would have financed research into fertilizer, but Daugaard vetoed it and called it an unneeded tax.
The House and Senate ended the session about 12:45 p.m. CDT.
The Legislature had little to do on its final day because the governor vetoed only one bill after the main run of the legislative session that ended March 8.
