Recap of Governor Noem’s appearance at Lincoln Day dinner in Watertown Thursday

WATERTOWN, S.D.(AlphaMedia)–Governor Kristi Noem was in Watertown Thursday night speaking to a local group at the Codington County Republican Lincoln Day Dinner.

This week there were arguments before the Supreme Court on Amendment A–which legalizes recreational marijuana in the state, and which was approved by voters in November.

Governor Noem was asked if she had a sense of how those arguments went, and how the Supreme Court will rule.

So-called “vaccine passports” have been in the news recently. The governor explains what they are, and why you won’t see them in South Dakota.

On the COVID-19 front, the governor says South Dakota is doing well.

The governor also commented on the recent decision by the U.S. Department of Transportation to pull the plug on SkyWest Airlines in Watertown and Pierre, and replace it with the much smaller Denver Air Connection.

Lieutenant Governor Larry Rhoden and Attorney General candidate Marty Jackley were also in attendance at last night’s event.
