SD Joint Committee on Appropriations receive update on federal funding

PIERRE, S.D.(WNAX)- The Joint Committee on Appropriations of the South Dakota legislature got a report on the approximately eleven billion dollars in federal funding the state has received since early last year.

Committee Co-chair, Senator Jean Hunhoff of Yankton, says they want to track where the money is going and what has been funded.

The state will get almost one billion dollars this year. Hunhoff says they are having talks about where that money should go.

Hunhoff is part of a task force that will make recommendations on spending priorities for the new money.
