South Dakota is a US state.

Lockdown resistance

During the US COVID-19 lockdown, South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem "accused Americans across the nation of giving up their 'liberties for a little bit of security', vowing to keep her state open".[1]

In February 2021, South Dakota’s Republican-controlled House introduced legislation that would allow the state to nullify President Biden’s executive orders if it determines they are unconstitutional - if the order has not been affirmed by a vote of the Congress of the United States and signed into law). The bill targets orders that would “restrict a person’s rights,” specifically pointing to orders related to a “pandemic or other public health emergency” and “the regulation of the constitutional right to keep and bear arms,” among other topics.[2]
