How does the state Department of Education plan to use $6.9 million in federal grant money to support students during the pandemic? Plus, how are state associations responding to Governor Kristi Noem's opposition to mandatory masking?

All this and more in today’s SDPB News Podcast. Find it on Apple Podcasts or Spotify today.

Governor Kristi Noem’s office is clarifying her stance on mask wearing among students, after a campaign email last week says she’s encouraging them return to school “without masks.”

A governor’s spokesperson calls the fundraising email “in-artfully written.” They say Noem believes if people want to wear a mask, that is their own prerogative. The spokesperson says she has—and continues—to oppose mandatory masking, but she has never discouraged wearing them.

David Knudson served as chief of staff for former-governor Bill Janklow and as majority leader in the South Dakota state senate. He’s also overseen more than two-billion dollars in other gifts as T. Denny Sanford’s lawyer.

But this latest gift came as a surprise to Knudson—a difficult feat, according to Law School Dean Neil Fulton
