Daugaard to outline spending priorities to state Legislature

Posted: Updated:

PIERRE, S.D. (AP) - South Dakota Gov. Dennis Daugaard is set to outline his spending priorities to lawmakers at the state Capitol.

The Republican on Tuesday will give his annual budget address to the state Legislature. Lawmakers will rework this year's budget and make the next one during the 2018 legislative session.

Daugaard said ahead of the speech that money will be tight for South Dakota's current and upcoming fiscal years. The session that starts in January and ends in late March is Daugaard's last as governor.

Recently released state figures show revenues for the first four months of the current budget year are roughly $8.3 million below expectations largely because of short sales tax receipts.

South Dakota Public Broadcasting will carry the 1 p.m. speech live on TV, radio and the internet .
