SD Lawmakers To Consider 37 Budget Amendments

March 10, 2011, 5:41 AM

SD Lawmakers To Consider 37 Budget Amendments
PIERRE, SD - South Dakota lawmakers have just two days to finalize the state's budget, the biggest issue facing the legislature this session.

In an effort to cushion deep cuts to education and heath care, lawmakers will consider 37 amendments aimed at funneling money to high-priority programs.

The Joint Appropriations Committee will gather at 8 a.m. Thursday to debate the budget. Many of the amendments deal with increasing funding for schools and Medicaid providers, the two groups that will be hit the hardest by the governor's proposed 10 percent cuts.

KELOLAND News has a crew in Pierre to bring you those developments as they happen.
That includes:
  • Live coverage on KELOLAND.com as we stream the sessions throughout the day.
  • Live blogging to allow you to share comments as decisions are made.
  • Live reports from Ben Dunsmoor at the state capitol on KELOLAND News.
Then the House and Senate will work to approve a balanced budget by the end of the week before taking a two week break. They'll return to the Capitol March 28 to re-consider any issues the Governor vetoes.
