Final day of 2020 legislative session will be held via teleconference

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) – The South Dakota Legislature will meet via teleconference for the final scheduled day of this year’s legislative session.

Lawmakers were scheduled to convene on Monday in Pierre to consider action on any vetoes from Gov. Kristi Noem, but decided to hold the meeting remotely due to the outbreak of COVID-19.

The meeting can also be used to consider emergency actions like budget adjustments or legislative action in light of the global pandemic.

The public will still be able to listen to the teleconference.

Rep. Bob Glanzer, a Huron Republican, is in the hospital after being infected with COVID-19.
