Re-worked Resolution Supports Federal Disaster Declaration For SD

Capitol News Bureau
KELO Gear Up Pierre Capitol Building

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.
