(Pierre, SD) — Governor Kristi Noem is issuing her first veto of this legislative session. Noem rejected a measure yesterday that would have allowed municipalities to charge a higher tax on people staying at lodging places. The governor announced the veto with a picture of her using a branding iron to stamp her rejection onto the measure. The original House and Senate votes fell short of short the two-thirds majority that will be needed to override the veto.
