SDATA Capitol Hill Day – Hotel Information

The Legislative Breakfast in Pierre, scheduled for Monday February 26th, is fast approaching.  If you are looking for accommodations, there has been a block of rooms set aside for the SDATA at the EconoLodge (605-224-5951).  The rooms are non-smoking double rooms at a cost of $54.80 including tax and fees.  Cancellations will need to be made by 4pm on Feb 24th (but EconoLodge is willing to work with last minute cancelations due to weather or other unforeseen circumstances).  This block of rooms will be closed on February 24th.  Additionally, a talking points document to be shared with legislators is currently being finalized.  Breakfast is being catered by Big Tom’s Diner.  The breakfast will be set up around 7:15am and shut down a little after 9:30am.
