Gov. Dennis Daugaard to Outline Budget Proposal to Lawmakers
PIERRE, S.D. (AP) — Gov. Dennis Daugaard is outlining his key priorities for the 2016 legislative session.
The governor's budget address is scheduled for Tuesday. He will outline his spending plans to state lawmakers at the state Capitol in Pierre.
Daugaard says better-than-expected revenues will allow him to propose larger budget increases.
Daugaard says he plans to discuss issues including paying off debt and a task force that examined education and how to raise teacher pay.
He says he won't outline specific proposals from the work of the education task force until his State of the State speech.
The 2016 legislative session is scheduled to begin Jan. 12.
Lawmakers are set to wrap up their man run in mid-March and return for consideration of gubernatorial vetoes at the end of that month.
