Committee Touring State Facilities

The Joint Committee on Appropriations of the South Dakota legislature will be on the move in the south east part of the state this week. Committee member Senator Billie Sutton of Burke says they will tour the Human Services Center Campus in Yankton, USD in Vermillion, and the new Good Earth State Park south of Sioux Falls. He says a number of members have not seen some of the state facilities……

They will also hold a sit down meeting at the University Center in Sioux Falls.

Sutton says they will also talk about funding for the new Vets Home in Hot Springs. A special session about that funding was cancelled by the Governor……

Construction estimates for the new home were low by about ten million dollars. Sutton says many legislators have questions about the whole process……

The committee meets today and tomorrow (Tuesday).
