South Dakota lawmakers delay decision on revenue expectations

Posted: Updated:

PIERRE, S.D. (AP) - The South Dakota Legislature's budget-writing committee has delayed a decision on how much revenue to expect for the rest of the current year and the budget year that begins July 1.

The Joint Appropriations Committee had planned to make a formal decision Monday. But House Appropriations Chairman Fred Romkema of Spearfish says the decision is delayed until at least Tuesday because the Legislature has not settled the fate of some other bills that could affect revenue collections.

The committee later this week will put the finishing touches on the spending plan so the Legislature can pass the budget by Friday, the end of the main run of this year's legislative session.

Gov. Dennis Daugaard has proposed a $4.1 billion state budget, with $1.3 billion to come from state tax funds.
