PIERRE, S.D. (SDBA) — The special state senate committee looking into an incident by Sen. Julie Frye-Mueller with a state employee recommends the Rapid City Republican be censured and reinstated.
The Senate Select Committee on Discipline and Expulsion met for nearly four hours Tuesday.
In addition to censure and reinstatement, Sen. Frye-Mueller would be banned from working with the Legislative Research Council for the remainder of the session.
Sen. Frye-Mueller complained about the process:
Republican Sen. Helene Duhamel of Rapid City asked Sen. Frye-Miller about the appropriateness of her conversation with the state employee.
The select committee is scheduled to consider today at noon.
If the committee adopts the draft, it would be on the floor of the Senate for consideration this afternoon
