Senate Approves Extra Money For S. Dakota Schools

Senate Approves Extra Money For S. Dakota Schools
PIERRE, SD -

The South Dakota Senate has approved a measure that will use unexpectedly high tax collections to give extra money to South Dakota school districts and workers who take care of poor people and the disabled.

Lawmakers have determined that tax collections this year will be about $12 million higher than Gov. Dennis Daugaard projected when he proposed his budget three months ago.

The bill would give school districts a one-time bonus of $8.6 million. Another $1.5 million would be matched with other money to give people who work in nursing homes and other facilities bonuses equal to about 5 percent of their annual salaries.

The bill also provides money to shore up a retirement fund for former cement plant workers and to protect Ellsworth Air Force Base from closure.
