PIERRE, S.D.–A bill from Governor Kristi Noem requiring a moment of silence at the start of a school day to allow for prayer or other reflection has been effectively killed by the House Education Committee. 

Testifying against the bill was Rob Munson, the Executive Director of the School Administrators of South Dakota, who first paused, before making these comments…

Representative Will Mortenson of Pierre was a “no” vote on the bill……

The Committee voted 9-to-6 to send House Bill 1015 to the 41st legislative day, effectively killing it.
