Representative says funding for nursing homes a good first step

YANKTON, S.D. (WNAX) – The main run of the 2019 South Dakota legislative session ended in the early morning hours last Wednesday by passing the budget and leaving to avoid the incoming blizzard.

Democratic Representative Ryan Cwach of Yankton says he didn’t expect that kind of ending.

The budget provides more money for nursing homes and Cwach says he wants to hear from the providers.

Cwach says this is not the final solution.

Legislators return to Pierre for the final day of the session on March 29.
