camera. but, a policy advisor to governor dennis daugaard says this doesn't absolve south dakotans from paying fines in iowa. "this is an attempt from the administration to properly carry out the legistlator's intent when they passed this law. if a citizen of south dakota gets one of these tickets, they need to speak with their attorney to determine what their liability is as it relates to that ticket in the processes," said matt konenkamp, policy advisor to s.d.'s governor. the move protects south dakotans from private contractors, who oversee the cameras, from getting their personal information. although sioux city police can no longer access the information through the database, an assistant city attorney says the violations will continue to be sent as normal. "we're confident in the other methods that we have to research address and actually send out citiations that we don't feel there will be any glich going forward and tickets will go out like they did to anyone caught violating in sioux city," said justin vondrak, assistant city attorney. konenkamp says sioux city police will have 24-7 access to the south dakota disptach to get any neccasary information regarding criminal cases.

"if sioux city wants to put the cameras on their own streets, that's fine, but when you put it on the interstate, i think that's wrong," said rep. jim bolin, (r) canton.
