Section 1. That § 36-24-33 be amended to read as follows:
36-24-33. Any person who practices the dispensing of hearing aids in the State of South Dakota
shall deliver to each person sold a hearing aid a receipt which contains the seller's signature, the
business address of the seller, specification of the hearing aid furnished including whether it is new,
used, or rebuilt, serial number of the aid, date of sale, and the total purchase price charged for the

from the date of delivery unless set by contract for more than thirty days. Any refund shall be paid
within thirty days of the return date. A violation of this section is a Class 2 misdemeanor.
