SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) — South Dakota lawmakers have summoned two people who were present at a meeting Gov. Kristi Noem held last year that included her daughter, Kassidy Peters, and state employees who were overseeing Peters’ application for a real estate appraiser license.

The Legislature’s Government Operations and Audit Committee, which is controlled by Republicans, sent letters asking Secretary of Labor and Regulation Marcia Hultman and the former director of the state’s Appraiser Certification Program, Sherry Bren, to show up at a meeting next week.

Although it isn’t clear what will be asked of the women, the requests for them to appear at the meeting show that lawmakers want more answers from the Republican governor.
