Governor Kristi Noem issued an order Monday changing where some state offices are assigned.

She told South Dakota lawmakers the state Office of Indian Education would be moved under the state Department of Tribal Relations.

Indian Education had been part of the state Department of Education since Mike Rounds resurrected it two governors ago.

Noem’s also adding several groups to the Governor’s Office of Economic Development.

They had been part of the state Department of Agriculture.

One is the Value Added Finance Authority. It helps finance agricultural-oriented projects.

Others moving to GOED are the South Dakota Certified Beef Program, assets of the Rural Rehabilitation Corporation and the Farm Link program.

Farm Link works to pair young and beginning farmers with farms and ranches for sale or possibly going on the market.

The governor’s executive order was published Monday evening in the official House of Representatives journal.
