U.S. Rep. Kristi Noem says she enjoys visiting the South Dakota Legislature where she served before being elected to Congress.
Noem gave brief speeches Wednesday to the state House and Senate.
South Dakota's lone member of the U.S. House says returning to visit the Legislature is like coming back to a miracle. She says South Dakota state government gets things done, while Washington is dysfunctional.
Noem says Congress is poised to pass a new Farm Bill that will protect farmers and ranchers in times of disaster. She says the measure will reauthorize a livestock disaster program that will retroactively help ranchers who lost cattle in last fall's blizzard and those who were hurt by a drought two years ago.
Noem was a member of the South Dakota House in 2007-2010.
