Joint Committee on Appropriations to get tax revenue numbers

PIERRE, S.D.(WNAX)- The Joint Committee on Appropriations of the South Dakota legislature are set to get the latest tax revenue numbers.

Co- Chair, Senator Jean Hunhoff of Yankton, says indications point toward another increase in state revenues.

With higher revenues there may be pressure to increase spending. Hunhoff says she needs to see the full report before moving in that direction.

The Governor has proposed a six percent increase in state aid to education and for state employees and health care providers.

Hunhoff says the costs really ramp up to go beyond that.

The JCA has to set revenues for the budget by today.
