Crackerbarrels provide the opportunity for Elevate investors and the Black Hills community to hear directly from area legislators and ask questions concerning issues of the 96th South Dakota Legislative Session.

Bring your questions about legislative bills or issues to submit to a panel of Representatives and Senators from Districts 30, 32, 33, 34, and 35. Don’t have a question? Consider tuning in to the livestream to hear the discussion about key topics for this year.
