The legislative session as told through tax bills

On today's In the Moment...

Throughout the legislative session, high-profile bills each take their turn in the spotlight. From there, they pass on to the lawbooks or the legislative trash heap. But the tax debate is always center stage.

During today's episode, Lori Walsh talks taxes and other hot political topics with a legislator, a political expert and two lobbyists.

First, she welcomes Representative Kameron Nelson. Rep. Nelson is a Democrat representing District 10. He talks about where money needs to flow and how personal Pierre politics can be.

Seth Tupper is editor-in-chief of the South Dakota Searchlightand a Dakota Political Junkie. He brings a recap and analysis of President Joe Biden's State of the Union address. What can we tell about the state of the Republican party from expressions on the faces in the crowd?

Plus, we take a look at the bills that would most impact schools across the state. Wade Pogany, executive director of Associated School Boards of South Dakota, and Rob Monson, executive director of the School Administrators of South Dakota, discuss the bills they've been watching. This includes the tax cut proposals that would affect school funding.
