Joint Committee on Appropriations to meet next week

YANKTON, S.D.(WNAX)- The Joint Committee on Appropriations of the South Dakota Legislature will hold their first meeting of the interim next week.

Co-Chair, Senator Jean Hunhoff of Yankton, says they will get updates from several ongoing programs.

Hunhoff says those letters help them follow the progress of authorized and funded programs.

Hunhoff says the Department of Corrections will also get a lot of attention.

A facilities study has recommended over a half billion dollars of upgrades that are needed in the corrections system.
