South Dakota Governor Dennis Daugaard outlined another tight budget proposal to South Dakota legislators today.

Daugaard says revenue projections for the new budget have been revised downward….again

Daugaard says despite that, there will be more money available this year

Daugaard says there will not be increases for schools or state employees

District 22 Representative Roger Chase wasn’t surprised by the Governor’s message.

District 22 Representative Bob Glanzer says South Dakota has a history of balancing its budget.

Daugaard says much of the slow revenue is due to strains in the ag economy, and increases in online sales.
