Several issues getting a lot of attention as session gets underway

PIERRE, S.D. (WNAX) – The 2021 session of the South Dakota legislature begins at noon today in Pierre.

Owen, President of the South Dakota Chamber of Commerce and Industry, says there will be extra money to spend, too.

Owen says having too much money can be a good problem.
