In the Moment: Can states legislate Miranda rights, and what will come of a promised special legislative session?


On today's show...

Pam Carriveau Ph.D., is associate professor of political science at Black Hills State University and Jon Schaff, Ph.D., is professor of government at Northern State University. They are today's Dakota Political Junkies . We talk about Medicaid expansion, a special legislative session, and Governor Kristi Noem's statement that "the time is right" for a debate about an expansive paid leave policy in South Dakota. Does that mean she will push for it?

We look at Supreme Court decisions that could change the way Miranda rights are handled. Mike Thompson J.D., is associate professor of criminal science at the University of Sioux Falls.

SDPB's Joshua Haiar reports on the race to find housing in the state's largest cities.

Plus, Edith Johnson of Meet Me @ the Altar talks about the pop-punk scene and why it needs diverse musicians and positive role models.
