SD Legislature Endorses Balanced Budget Amendment

February 28, 2012, 3:59 PM

SD Legislature Endorses Balanced Budget Amendment
PIERRE, SD -

The South Dakota Legislature has given its approval to Gov. Dennis Daugaard's plan to amend the state constitution to make it clear that the state budget must be balanced.

The Senate voted 30-3 on Tuesday to approve the proposal, which was passed earlier by the House. It now will go on the November ballot for a statewide public vote.

The governor has said language in the South Dakota Constitution now only implies that the state budget must be balanced. The proposed change in the constitution would say the governor must propose and the Legislature must pass a balance budget each year.

Senate Republican Leader Russell Olson of Wentworth says it makes sense to add language to the constitution specifically requiring a balanced state budget.
