Governor Calls For Business Incentive Ideas

Governor Calls For Business Incentive Ideas
Governor Dennis Daugaard


South Dakota has been ranked as a great state to start a business but Governor Dennis Daugaard is worried that could change.

During the general election in November, South Dakotans voted down a measure that provided a large-project incentive for large businesses interested in coming to South Dakota.

Governor Daugaard says he would welcome new ideas from the legislature to give companies incentives to bring their businesses to the state.

"I know there is still a concern about this tax and about the adequacy of our state's economic development programs.  And I welcome a discussion with the legislature this year about how we should move forward. I need your help and your ideas," Daugaard said during his State of the State address Tuesday.

Daugaard did say the state's economy is doing much better than many other states across the country. He said while others are looking for places to cut money from budgets, South Dakota can now look at where to spend.
