SD lawmakers may have larger budget than previously thought

Joint Committee on Appropriations projected $1.6 billion target for next year

PIERRE, S.D. - South Dakota lawmakers might have more money in their budget than they originally thought.

The legislature's joint Committee on Appropriations placed the state revenue millions of dollars more than Gov. Dennis Daugaard's December budget.

A projected $1.6-billion target for next year was made by the panel.

That's nearly $20-million more than December.

Lawmakers say they would like to fund increases for education, Medicaid providers and state employees.
