PIERRE, S.D. (AP) – A House bill endorsed by both parties seeks to disclose the security costs for Gov. Kristi Noem’s travel on behalf of former President Donald Trump’s campaign last year.
Requests for the information by The Associated Press and other media outlets have been rejected with officials citing security concerns.
Republican Rep. Taffy Howard of Rapid City says the proposed legislation would not only require future costs to be disclosed, but would be applied retroactively to Noem’s security costs during her travel across the country on behalf of Trump and other Republicans.
