South Dakota’s top lawmakers release AG impeachment petition

YANKTON, S.D.(WNAX)- A petition calling for a special session of the South Dakota legislature to consider the impeachment of Attorney General Jason Ravnsborg is circulating to members of the House and Senate.

Representative Mike Stevens of Yankton says there are ongoing discussions.

Stevens says many members only information about the case is what has been in the media.

Stevens says legislators have little guidance on how to proceed.

Two thirds of both Houses would have to agree to call themselves into a special session. Governor Kristi Noem could also call the legislature back to Pierre.
