State Senator and candidate for the U.S. Senate, Larry Rhoden, laid out his plan to reform Washington.
At a media event in Sioux Falls Wednesday, Rhoden of Union Center, said that if elected he plans to:
-control and reduce spending
-reign-in repressive bureaucracy like the EPA.
Rhoden said the business as usual philosophy will continue if South Dakota voters send people to Washington who will settle for the status quo.
"We need to change how Washington works before we can change what Washington does," said Rhoden.
Rhoden is one of six people seeking U.S. Senator Tim Johnson's vacated seat in 2014.
Others seeking the GOP nomination are former Gov. Mike Rounds, State Rep. Stace Nelson of Fulton, Sioux Falls physician Annette Bosworth, and Yankton attorney, Jason Ravnsborg.
