Updated tax revenue numbers expected this week

PIERRE, S.D. (WNAX) – The Appropriations Committees of the South Dakota legislature will get the updated tax revenue numbers this week and from that will begin to fill out the 2021 budget bill.

Representative Jean Hunhoff of Yankton says from what they have seen so far, there will still be a gap.

Hunhoff says they have sub committees working with all the big state departments and agencies, looking for dollars.

Hunhoff says there is no big leftover pot of money.

Hunhoff took part in the District 18 legislative forum Saturday in Yankton.
