We take a look at South Dakota's 92nd legislative session with SDPB's Kealey Bultena and Lee Strubinger. From deregulation to the philosophy of inflation projections in Pierre, Bultena and Strubinger analyze the session and discuss the work that is left to be done.

Members of one legislative committee are not discussing the administration of the EB-5 program in South Dakota. Executive Board members are meeting/met in Pierre Tuesday, and one lawmaker wanted to put an EB-5 discussion on the agenda. State Representative Kathy Tyler made the motion, and State Senator Larry Lucas seconded it. Both are Democrats.
