SD Governor Expects Debate On One-Time Funding
January 1, 2012, 10:43 AM
PIERRE, SD -
Gov. Dennis Daugaard says he expects the South Dakota Legislature will extensively debate his proposals to use one-time money for some programs in next year's budget.
The governor wants to increase state spending on school districts, higher education, state employee salaries and health care. But much of that increased spending would be one-time additions that would not be built into ongoing spending.
Daugaard says he expects lawmakers will discuss whether it's appropriate to use one-time funds.
The governor says lawmakers seem to like his plan to give state employees a 3 percent across-the-board raise next year, but some question his proposal to give state workers a one-time bonus equal to 5 percent of their salaries this year.
