Daugaard: Money's tight for South Dakota state budget

PIERRE, S.D. – Gov. Dennis Daugaard said Monday that money will be tight for South Dakota’s current and upcoming budget years ahead of his yearly budget address to the state Legislature.

Lawmakers will revise this year’s budget and shape the next one during the 2018 legislative session. The Republican executive is set to outline his spending priorities to lawmakers at the state Capitol on Tuesday.

Daugaard said that officials will have to “tighten our belt” for the current budget year and be “very judicious” with the money available for 2019. Daugaard said that he will not be recommending cuts, but rather reducing the projected growth of some state expenses.

“We need to remember that South Dakota still is in good shape,” Daugaard told The Associated Press ahead of the address. “Maybe we’re not as able to fulfill all our wishes, but I would say we are still fulfilling our needs.”

2. I used to work in South Dakota during the summers

and would get a little ticked off when you would hear a resident complain about having to pay federal income tax. It's a state that doesn't have any individual state income tax but has a consumption tax on everything under the sun. I used to remind them that that meant Minnesota was helping to keep them afloat because they had to depend on way too many federal bucks.
