Kristi Noem to give first State of the State address

PIERRE, S.D. (AP) – Republican Gov. Kristi Noem is set to give her first State of the State address to lawmakers in Pierre.

The speech will be held Tuesday, when lawmakers gather for the 2019 legislative session. The session runs until lawmakers adjourn in late March.

It’s Noem’s first session as governor. She was sworn in to office over the weekend.

Noem has said she’ll release legislative priorities in the address and propose a state budget in the coming weeks.

Republicans hold supermajorities in both the House and the Senate.
