Big Win for South Dakota Agriculture
South Dakota State University Precision Agriculture project has been funded. One of the big WINS for agriculture this year in the South Dakota Legislature. Renovations and remodeling for Berg Hall will have to be raised by SDSU but they have funding for the new building and authority for the whole project and can proceed. Thank your legislator!
Tax levies will increase next year slightly. Agriculture will go to 1.512, owner-occupied 3.383 and commercial 7.001. These levies will provide a 1% increase to education.
The 93rd session of the South Dakota Legislature will balance the budget for the 2019 year keeping the state in great fiscal shape, maintaining a AAA bond rating, and funding the needs of state government. We look forward to working with all the legislators in the next session.
