A look back at 2023's legislative session

On today's In the Moment...

The legislative session is winding down, but is a veto battle on the horizon? Lawmakers and political analysts weigh in.

Gov. Kristi Noem signaled a possible challenge to legislators on Twitter. In a video, she called for a budget that includes an eliminated food tax and hints that she may veto a budget without it.

Rep. Will Mortenson is the House majority leader and a Republican representing District 24. He joins to talk about Gov. Noem's partnership with the state's Republican party and recounts the wins of the session.

Senators Shawn Bordeaux and Liz Larson join In the Moment to talk about political highlights from the other side of the aisle. Sen. Bordeaux is the assistant minority leader and represents District 26. Sen. Larson is the minority whip and represents District 10.
