What's new in the South Dakota Legislature

On today's In the Moment...

Crossover day in Pierre is in one week. On that day, all bills introduced in the House must move into the Senate and vice versa. The countdown begins.

In the Moment takes a dive into the high-interest bills still shuffling around the state Capitol and reviews a few that have made it to the governor's desk.

SDPB's Lee Strubinger brings us an analysis of Gov. Kristi Noem's proposed bill to ban the purchase of agricultural land by certain foreign entities and governments.

Representative Tyler Tordsen is a Republican representing District 14. He joins us to discuss his proposed bills and the bills he's seen as a member of the House Education and House Judiciary committees.

A Dakota Political Junkie pops over to provide a political and monetary analysis of this legislative session. Jonathan Ellis from The Dakota Scout discusses revenue estimates and how new information is changing the debate over tax cuts.

Plus, the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) has kept busy this session. Samantha Chapman is the advocacy manager of the ACLU's South Dakota chapter. She joins to talk gender-affirming care, birth control and free speech.
