South Dakota Capitol
Brent Duerre

This interview originally aired on "In the Moment" on SDPB Radio.

A recent hearing came to a grinding halt when lawmakers didn't reach a two-thirds majority thanks to some empty seats in the Legislature. They had to pull out the rulebook to figure out how to proceed.

SDPB's Lee Strubinger describes the confusion at the Capitol and explains what could be next to fill the vacancies.

Plus, he brings us the latest updates on the Medicaid expansion work requirements bill.
