SD Legislature works to pass state budget

Posted: Updated:

South Dakota lawmakers are working to pass a budget and take care of other last-minute details as the main run of this year's legislative session comes to a close.
The Joint Appropriations Committee planned to finish work on the $4.3 billion state budget Friday so the House and Senate could pass the spending measure by the end of the day. Lawmakers say they are still negotiating on proposals to give more money to school districts and health care facilities that depend heavily on Medicaid, the program that provides medical services to low-income people.
Lawmakers will return to the Capitol for a final day on March 31 to consider any vetoes issued by Gov. Dennis Daugaard.
