Noem also vetoed a bill what would have removed old marijuana charges from South Dakotans’ criminal background checks. The measure would have automatically removed simple marijuana charges and convictions from public background records if the the violation was more than five years old. That measure did not pass with a veto-proof majority.
And Noem has vetoed a bill dealing with informed consent provisions for pregnant minors. Noem says there are flaws in the language of the bill and it is not necessary.
