Dakota Political Junkies Roger Whittle and Dana Ferguson join us to discuss “deeply held religious beliefs” as they relate to adoption in the state. We also discuss lawmaker attempts to address refugee vetting and dig in to definitions by talking about shell bills, hoghouse amendments, and what it means when lawmakers smoke a bill out of committee.

Judges, attorneys, and law enforcement officers endorse a bill in South Dakota's Statehouse that aims to ease mental health problems for people entering the justice system. SDPB's Kealey Bultena joins us to talk about different facets of the bill.
