From the Argus Leader:
"Sen. Garry Moore, D-Yankton, expects a reply within a week or so to his freedom-of-information request for results of a federal review of how Gov. Mike Rounds uses state aircraft and repays the state for personal trips.
"Moore, who submitted several questions about Rounds’ use of aircraft to the Federal Aviation Administration last month, said he later was told by an FAA official that he would need to use the freedom-of-information process to get his answers.“I submitted that request, and I anticipate I’ll hear something back within the next week or 10 days,” Moore said Friday. “They have 20 business days to reply.”
"Moore, the Senate minority leader, and House Democratic leader Dale Hargens of Miller signed a letter last month that posed five questions to the FAA about aircraft use and repayment to the state for personal trips taken by Rounds."
