SD Joint Committee on Appropriation to work on 2022 budget

PIERRE, S.D.(WNAX)- With the Joint Committee on Appropriations agreeing on revenue numbers, debate will now focus on the details.

Governor Kristi Noem has recommended a two-point four percent increase for state workers, community support providers and schools.

JCA Member, Senator Reynold Nesiba of Sioux Falls, says they can do better.

Nesiba says community providers need more attention.

Nesiba says several areas in the state are seeing more competition for workers.

The budget must be set by the final day of the session, March 11th.
