SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - South Dakota will receive more than $60 million in water project funding in the massive federal infrastructure bill.

While state budget planners are still determining the U.S. Treasury Department’s stipulations on how to use it, the infusion of federal dollars to state coffers means South Dakota’s next budget will likely be larger than ever.

The funding is part of about $355 million that South Dakota is set to receive over the next several years. The additional dollars at the state’s disposal means more opportunities for big-ticket projects and spending initiatives.
