Lawmakers ready to subpoena documents from Governor’s office

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) — South Dakota lawmakers are readying to issue a subpoena to Gov. Kristi Noem’s administration to hand over a document regarding her daughter’s attempt to get a state appraisal license.

Gov. Kristi Noem with daughter Kassidy Peters.  

They want to know if there was an agreement in place to give Kassidy Peters another chance at the license prior to a meeting last year in Noem’s office that has spurred conflict-of-interest questions. Peters failed her initial appliation for the real estate appraisal license.

The Legislature’s Government Operations and Audit Committee has set a meeting for Monday if it doesn’t receive the documents.

So far, the Republican governor’s administration has resisted handing them over.
