Lawmaker Wants Investigation Of Noem Airplane Usage

(Pierre, SD) — A South Dakota Democratic lawmaker is asking the state’s attorney general to investigate Governor Kristi Noem’s plane use. Senator Reynold Nesiba has asked Attorney General Jason Ravnsborg in a letter Wednesday to look into whether Noem used state-owned airplanes for “personal use, out-of-state political campaigning and attending partisan political events.” A 2006 law sponsored by Nesiba says that state-owned aircraft can only be used for state business. Noem has received criticism for her extensive out-of-state travel in 2019 that she has characterized as part of her job as “an ambassador for the state.”
