SD Lawmakers trying to figure out what to do with excess money

PIERRE, S.D.(WNAX)- South Dakota legislators have the unique problem of almost too much money this year. Due to federal Covid-19 funds and good sales tax returns, there could be as much as three hundred million dollars in one-time money.

Democratic Representative Ryan Cwach of Yankton says they should focus on pandemic related needs.

Cwach says there are some worthy projects that could be funded.

The budget bill is usually presented on the final day of the main run of the session, which this year is March 11th.
