Rather than taking a stand against Rep. Dusty Johnson, a South Dakota Senate Committee decided to stand behind flood and storm victims.
Senate Resolution 7 originally rebuked Rep. Johnson for voting against President Trump’s latest build-the-wall strategy.
Senate Democratic leader Troy Heinert made a hoghouse motion.
Now, the resolution asks South Dakota’s congressional delegation to work with Governor Kristi Noem to secure a federal disaster declaration to aid South Dakota counties and tribes. Senators voted 30-0 for the Heinert version.
