The state legislature wrapped up its work last Friday after passing a final budget. Lawmakers return to Pierre on Monday, March 30 to consider any vetoes by Governor Dennis Daugaard. Watertown Public Opinion managing editor Roger Whittle and Sioux Falls Argus Leader reporter and columnist Jonathan Ellis joined Dakota Midday and reviewed what they described as a "meat and potatoes" session. They also discussed Sunshine Week which newspapers across the country are using to promote openness in government and public access to public records.
