Grant Recipients Contribute To Governor's Campaign

Grant Recipients Contribute To Governor's Campaign
PIERRE, SD -

South Dakota's governor has received thousands of dollars in campaign contributions from individuals affiliated with companies that have been given grants overseen by his office.

The campaign contributions are permissible, but they were subject to criticism during this year's legislative session.

Records from the Governor's Office of Economic Development show Gov. Dennis Daugaard has given out $26.5 million in Future Fund grants during his first three years in office.

Officers of several of the companies benefited by those grants have contributed to Daugaard's campaign.

A Democratic state representative questioned these contributions and sought to prohibit them through a bill introduced this year.

A legislative committee killed the measure in mid-February.
