(S.D.)-Schools, Medical Providers Want More State Money

By: Jeremy Anderson Posted at: 12/03/2012 06:35 AM
     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.
 
Hhe 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.
