Kennedy Named Senate Assistant Minority Leader

District 18 Senator Craig Kennedy has been named as Senate Assistant Minority Leader for the upcoming session of the South Dakota Legislature.

The selection was made at a caucus over the weekend and Kennedy says being in a leadership position will increase his level of interaction with the incoming Noem administration.

Kennedy says at this point lawmakers are waiting to see what changes will be made as Governor-Elect Kristi Noem takes over from the Daugaard administration.

The 2019 session of the South Dakota Legislature begins at noon on January 8th.
