Will Bill Peterson (& Son) be lobbying in Pierre?

It was recently announced that Bill and his son will be lobbyists with this firm. If you read their government relations page, it seems the firm mostly lobby in the Minnesota state legislature. But were the Peterson’s recruited to lobby in SD? If so, doesn’t this present a conflict of interest with Sue Peterson serving for D-13 in the legislature? This is what the press release said;

Bill Peterson and Robert Peterson are not licensed to practice law. Their practice is limited to government relations consulting, which includes state and local lobbying.

It will be interesting to watch their activities.
