The 2023 South Dakota Legislative Session was a busy and productive time. Here are some fun highlights.

I enjoyed the tour of the Sanford Underground Research Facility before the legislative session began.

Carmen and I attended Governor Kristi Noem's Inaugural Ball on January 7, 2023.

A full calendar of events kept South Dakota legislators busy.

The flowers were from my beautiful wife, Carmen.

We celebrated the 75th Anniversary of Crazy Horse.

Jean Hunhoff, State Senator from Yankton's District 18, is shown with the SDSU Jackrabbit Football team's national championship trophy.

I had the honor of sponsoring Quinn Alt (center) as a page during this Legislative Session.
