Committee To Consider Education Funding Bill
February 6, 2012, 7:35 AM
PIERRE, SD -
It's a big day in Pierre for schools statewide. A Rapid City senator is backing a bill that would help fund education in South Dakota, which is up for discussion Monday.
The Senate Taxation Committee is scheduled to review Senate Bill 120. If passed and signed by the governor, it would raise the state sales tax by one percent in the months of June, July and August. That money would then go to schools in the state.
Senator Stan Adelstein, who is sponsoring the bill, sent out a letter to superintendents, teachers and school boards statewide asking for their support of this bill.
If the bill dies in committee, it's the end of the road for it. If its passes, it still has a long road ahead through the legislative process, including the Senate floor and House of Representatives.
The committee hearing is scheduled for 10 a.m. Monday. We'll have details on what happens throughout the day on KELOLAND News and KELOLAND.com
