South Dakota Tax Revenues Lower than Projected

Lawmakers on a state budget subcommittee believes that revenue streams for the state will be $27.8 million lower than projected in December of last year, reports KOTA News. Lawmakers are also projecting approximately $25.3 million less in ongoing receipts for the current budget cycle.

Jim Terwilliger, the state’s economist, cites low inflation and a decrease in spending in the farm economy as possible contributors to the lower revenue. The Legislature’s Joint Committee on Appropriations will formally announce budget levels.
