The first month of the South Dakota legislative session is highlighting new challenges (particularly around pandemic-related issues) and some familiar battles (think: transgender discrimination). For our weekly SDPB journalist roundtable, we dive in to topics old and new.  Guests: Jackie Hendry, host of South Dakota Focus on SDPB-TV, Seth Tupper, SDPB's business and economic development reporter, and Lee Strubinger, SDPB's politics and public policy reporter. 

  

On Tuesday, state lawmakers will hear a bill that prevents people from changing the sex listed on their birth certificates. 

The sponsor says it’s meant to clarify an inconsistency in the courts. Opponents say it would codify discrimination against the transgender community in South Dakota. 

Lawmakers in the House Health and Human Services committee will hear the bill at 8 a.m. on Tuesday .

We have a new president. A Heavily guarded inauguration ceremony went smoothly as Joe Biden was sworn in as the 46th President of the United States.

How will the country look different under his administration? How is he approaching the pandemic? Are South Dakotans in for any big changes?

And, in one of his last acts as president, Donald Trump raised eyebrows in South Dakota with the pardon of Paul Erickson who was sentenced to seven years in prison last year for defrauding investors.
