$4.8 Billion Budget Outlined by Governor Daugaard

South Dakota Governor Dennis Daugaard has drawn up an ambitious budget for the state in the next year. According to the Rapid City Journal article, his proposed budget of $4.8 billion includes $80 million in new state spending as well as increases in teacher pay and expanded Medicaid coverage. Increasing Medicaid coverage is in direct contrast to past Republican governors, who have typically not favored expanding coverage.
