Legislative Committee To Discuss Governor Security Costs

The South Dakota House State Affairs Committee will hear a bill today that would expand the information available on the security costs for Governor Kristi Noem. State Department of Public Safety Secretary Craig Price says the security is set by his department.

Noem has traveled across the country in the past year, making campaign stops for former President Trump and other republican candidates. Price says giving details of security expenses could weaken that protection.

Price says he will try to explain how their security operates.  He says the cost of the Governor’s security is contained in the annual budget.
