SD Interim Appropriation Committe to meet Friday

YANKTON, S.D.(WNAX)- Under the latest federal stimulus plan, the State of South Dakota could get another billion dollars or so.

The interim Appropriations Committee of the legislature meets Friday and Co-Chair, Senator Jean Hunhoff of Yankton says they will need more information on how the state can spend the dollars.

Hunhoff says the Governors office has talked about working with legislators on a spending plan.

The Governor has talked about calling legislators back for a special session next month or in June. Hunhoff says that timing may be premature.

The committee will also get an update on the SB55 task force, which is studying possible efficiencies in management of the Board of Regents.
