South Dakota lawmakers question Noem’s meeting with daughter
SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) — South Dakota Republican and Democratic legislators say they want more details from Gov. Kristi Noem’s administration on a meeting last year that included the governor, her daughter and state employees overseeing an agency that had moved to deny her daughter’s application to become a certified real estate appraiser.
In response to a report from The Associated Press this week, the Legislature’s Government Operations and Audit Committee will look into the matter when it meets at the end of October. The committee chair, Republican Sen. Kyle Schoenfish, said he is still working out the details of how to address the issue.
Attorney General Jason Ravnsborg has said he is reviewing the episode.
