(SD)-Noem Signs Spending Bills

By: John Axtell Posted at: 03/18/2020 01:36 PM
PIERRE, S.D. (AP) -  South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem has signed legislation that will kick in over $6.4 million dollars to state programs including a new radio system for first responders and several new programs at state universities.

     The biggest-ticket item is $5.1 million to upgrade the radio system used by police, firefighters and other first responders.

     Noem also immediately made $450,000 available for partial tax refunds for low-income people over the age of 65 or people with disabilities.

      The rest of the money includes almost $400,000 for a tech business startup center at Dakota State University and $550,000 for a rural veterinarian program at South Dakota State University.
