SIOUX FALLS, S.D. – 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 sent letters requesting Noem’s secretary of labor and the former director of the state’s Appraiser Certification Program, Sherry Bren, to show up at a meeting next week.
