SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (Dakota News Now) - On this week’s Matters of the State, we take a look at what the approval of the proposed social studies standards could mean for educators in the state moving forward.

Statehouse reporter Austin Goss discusses the final push for the standards, as well as why $200 million for workforce housing in South Dakota is likely to sit on the shelf for a second straight year.

State Rep. Kameron Nelson (D-Sioux Falls) joins the program to discuss his first term in Pierre, his experience as an openly gay man in the state legislature, and the future of the South Dakota Democratic Party following the passing of outgoing party chair Randy Seiler.
