Legislative Coffee allows community to voice concerns with legislators

Local News

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (KELO) — The 2020 South Dakota legislative session continues in Pierre, with the fourth week of the session just concluding. A number of bills have voters’ attention, and today, people got the opportunity to talk with a few legislators.

Attendees asked questions through a moderator at the event that centered on current discussions happening at the state capitol. Among the bills discussed were measures involving the LGBTQ+ community, commercial surrogacy and immunizations for school enrollment.

Over 100 people were at this event. Seven legislators were at the event to hear constituents’ cocerns and questions.

“They talked about a lot of different bills, some of which I was familiar with, some of which I was not very familiar with. It was really helpful for me to hear the legislators talk about their views. Obviously they put a lot of work and time into what they do so I felt it was helpful,” attendee Cindy Matthes said.

Coming up later tonight on KELOLAND Weekend News at 10, hear from three of those legislators about some of their views and what they are looking forward to with the rest of the legislative session.
