Veto Day with Tom Dempster | South Dakota Focus

Governor Noem vetoed four bills this session. Veto Day is reserved for lawmakers to consider those vetoes, and potentially overrule them. But the chances of overturning a governor's veto are very slim. In the last 20 years, lawmakers have overridden barely 1% of the vetoes they receive. That's according to former state senator Tom Dempster. He joined the Political Junkies segment of In the Moment recently to talk about Veto Day and the selection of legislative summer studies from a former lawmaker's perspective.
