Daugaard Talks About Jobs, Economy During State Of State

Daugaard Talks About Jobs, Economy During State Of State
PIERRE, SD -

Lawmakers will be working Wednesday in Pierre, with South Dakota Governor Dennis Daugaard's State of the State address fresh in their minds.

One major theme of the address is putting millions of dollars into career and technical education.

Daugaard mentioned in his speech that South Dakota's economy is booming. The state has 10,000 more jobs than it did before the recession.  

Daugaard proposed some new efforts to train people for jobs critical to South Dakota's economic development.

He also touched on South Dakota's improving economy and on how the average income in the state is now among the highest in the nation. 

"In the third quarter last year, personal income growth compared to the same quarter in 2012 was the highest in the nation. We have reached another important milestone as well, as our per capita income now exceeds the national average. Numbers available for 2012 indicate that the average South Dakotan earns about 3.8 percent more than the average American," Daugaard said.

Daugaard is also proposing $5 million in grants for career and technical education.
