Governor's Budget Address
Governor Dennis Daugaard outlines budget in annual address
The Associated Press - December 5, 2017

PIERRE, S.D. - South Dakota Gov. Dennis Daugaard has outlined state spending priorities that are limited for a second year by disappointing tax collections, proposing a plan that would fill a shortfall this budget year.

The Republican governor gave his annual budget address to the South Dakota Legislature on Tuesday.

The governor's administration is projecting a shortfall for the current budget year of nearly $34 million.

Daugaard would address the shortfall through a near split of reduced spending and cash sources such as budget reserves.

The governor's proposal for the upcoming cycle would add more than $20 million in education spending, nearly all from K-12 enrollment growth. Most state workers wouldn't see raises under Daugaard's budget outline.

The Legislature will reshape the current budget and approve the next one during the legislative session that begins in January.
