2017 State Lawmakers Face Lower Budget, Initiative Issues

A lower-than-expected budget will make for subdued state spending during the 2017 legislative session. As reported by the Rapid City Journal, state tax collections were lower than anticipated and Governor Daugaard has stated that an already lean budget may need further trimming. State Republicans are also looking to repeal an anti-corruption initiative that was passed by voters in the 2016 election.
