South Dakota Gov. Dennis Daugaard has proposed a state budget that would cut spending by 10 percent in
nearly every state agency next year.
His budget plan includes $127 million in cuts to reduce spending of state general funds to about $1.1 billion in the budget year that starts July 1.
The 10 percent cuts include state aid to school districts and reimbursement to doctors and others who provide services to low-income people in the Medicaid program.
The Republican governor unveiled his budget proposal to a joint session of the South Dakota House and Senate.
