House Select Committee on Impeachment to meet today

PIERRE, S.D.(DRGNews)- The House Select Committee on Investigation will meet again today (March 28, 2022) as legislators gather in Pierre for the final day of the 2022 session.

The committee has been debating the possible impeachment of Attorney General Jason Ravnsborg  for his conduct surrounding a fatal vehicle-pedestrian accident near Highmore in September 2020.

Committee Chair Representative Spencer Gosch of Glenham says their meeting is tentatively set for 3pm.

Gosch says they plan to make their report public today and will likely give the full House their recommendation.

Gosch says they’re hoping the information will become available to the public online, but that hasn’t been confirmed.

The committee’s report will set the tone for House lawmakers as they prepare to vote on whether or not to impeach Ravnsborg when they meet for a special session April 12.

Governor Kristi Noem and other members of her administration have been pressuring the committee to impeach the Attorney General.
