BE IT ENACTED BY THE LEGISLATURE OF THE STATE OF SOUTH DAKOTA:
     Section 1.  That § 54-15-3 be amended to read as follows:
     54-15-3.   Any person who is a victim of identity theft and has submitted a valid police report to a consumer reporting agency consumer may elect to place a security freeze on that person's consumer's report by making a request in writing by certified mail to a consumer reporting agency at an address designated by the consumer reporting agency to receive such requests. This section does not prevent a consumer reporting agency from advising a third party that a security freeze is in effect with respect to the consumer's credit report.
     Section 2.  That § 54-15-1 be repealed.
     54-15-1.   For purposes of this chapter, a victim of identity theft is a victim of a crime as defined in § 22-40-8.
