On today's update...

The Republican state legislature is all that stands in front of Governor Kristi Noem’s campaign promise to remove the sales tax on food. The policy’s success may come down to competing interests and end-of-year holiday shopping.

Another nursing home in South Dakota will close. Nursing home advocates point to Medicaid reimbursement as the main reason long term care facilities’ doors are shutting.

The man who once served as Bishop of the Sioux Falls Catholic Diocese for more than a decade has died. Bishop Paul Swain passed away Saturday at the age of 79.

The Sioux Falls area continues to be a hub for many of South Dakota’s immigrant communities. One church has become a gathering place for people from nearly a dozen countries who share a common faith and a common language.

The South Dakota Retailers Association, or SDRA, is encouraging people to shop local this holiday season. Many retailers have focused on offering locally made items.

And more.
