SD legislators still working on next year’s spending plans

With some deadlines approaching, South Dakota legislators will have to hustle on next year’s spending plan.

Senate Appropriations Committee Chair, Jean Hunhoff of Yankton, says all the spending requests will get a hearing.

With almost three hundred million dollars in one time money available, Hunhoff says requests are growing.

Hunhoff says they won’t take final action on bills until later in the session.

Legislators were off since Friday for the holiday weekend, then work three days and take Friday off. They will start day 22 of the thirty-six-day session today.
