SD Governor Grades His Job Performance



Bookmark and Share

South Dakota Gov. Dennis Daugaard says he would rate his job performance as satisfactory after more than two years in office.
    
Daugaard says he thinks South Dakotans give him good grades for trying.
    
The Republican governor says he's had some successes, but also has had to learn on the job.
    
Daugaard eliminated the state's $127 million budget deficit in his first year in office by pushing spending cuts through the Legislature, a move criticized by Democrats. He also unsuccessfully attempted sweeping reforms of the education system, but succeeded in promoting changes in the criminal justice system aimed at reducing the state prison population.
    
The governor says he had some self-doubt about managing the state's response to flooding along the Missouri River two years ago.
