South Dakota Lawmakers Work To Finish State Budget

South Dakota Lawmakers Work To Finish State Budget
PIERRE, SD -

The South Dakota legislative panel putting together next year's state budget has rejected nearly two dozen proposals to boost spending.

The Joint Appropriations Committee started considering amendments to the $4 billion spending plan late Thursday. The panel plans to put the finishing touches on the budget early Friday so the House and Senate can pass the measure later in the day and bring an end to the main run of this year's legislative session.

Jason Dilges, budget director for Gov. Dennis Daugaard, says the Legislature has passed special spending bills in recent days that add one-time money to education and medical services. He says lawmakers should avoid increasing ongoing spending in the budget because the future is uncertain.
