SD Dems Want In-Person Testimony On EB-5

SD Dems Want In-Person Testimony On EB-5
SIOUX FALLS, SD -

South Dakota Democrats want Governor Dennis Daugaard and former Governor Mike Rounds to testify in person and under oath about the immigrant investor EB-5 program in front of a legislative panel next month.

Democratic legislators asked Tuesday morning that Daugaard and Rounds along with former EB-5 administrator Joop Bollen appear in person in front of the Government Operations and Audit committee in September.

The committee has been looking into the economic development program after former South Dakota Tourism Secretary Richard Benda committed suicide last fall. Investigators were closing in on Benda after discovering he inappropriately redirected state money to the program.

Republican state Senator Larry Tidemann, the chairman of the legislative committee, said last week that he would ask Daugaard and Rounds to submit written answers to questions to avoid political confrontations during the meeting. Democratic state Representative Susan Wismer sits on the committee and is running for governor against Daugaard this fall.

However, Democrats said Tuesday they want to question the Republicans in person.
