Governor Daugaard's budget proposal will be released Tuesday

Posted: Updated:

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - South Dakota Gov. Dennis Daugaard will propose a cautious state budget with moderate spending increases that are unlikely to satisfy schools and medical providers. 

Daugaard has said he will propose increasing state aid to schools under a formula that increases that funding by the rate of inflation up to a maximum of 3 percent. He also will ask the Legislature to give medical providers a small increase in Medicaid reimbursements to cover the effects of inflation. 

But the governor says that he will not propose any larger increases to offset budget cuts made a year ago. 

Representatives of education and health care facilities say they need more money to make up for the earlier budget cuts. 

Daugaard unveils his budget proposals Tuesday.
