South Dakota Focus: Wins and losses for lawmakers in Pierre

Pierre capitol statehouse legislative session legislature

This interview is from SDPB's daily public-affairs show, In the Moment, hosted by Lori Walsh.

The South Dakota legislative session has come to close. How are senate and house leaders counting their wins and loses?

National hot button issues were also a major talking point this year, including school curriculum and transgender legislation. We discuss how South Dakota is reacting to national conversations.

Plus, South Dakota is one of the few states with "citizen lawmakers." That means legislators are working other jobs when they're not in Pierre. SDPB's Jackie Hendry met with some of these lawmakers to learn about their lives outside of session.

Hendry joins Lori Walsh on In the Moment to break it all down.
