Education, Medicaid To Be Debated

Governor Dennis Daugaard has proposed a three percent increase in state aid for schools next year. A number of legislators have said they may try to add to that increase.

Senator Jean Hunhoff of Yankton says each budget proposal is unique, and this one is no different…

 

Expanding Medicaid will also be heavily debated. The Governor has said he does not favor that, and did not include any money for that in his budget. Hunhoff, who chairs the Health and Human Services Committee, says she has been looking at what other states are doing…

 

Hunhoff says they know there are more people that need medical services…

 

Up to forty eight thousand additional people could be added to Medicaid under the expansion proposal. The federal government has said they will cover most of the expenses of the expansion for the first few years.
