Fiscal responsibility was an ongoing theme in South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem’s annual budget address. Noem said South Dakota has the strongest economy in America and said there will be no tax increases. “Remember, there isn’t a dollar the government spends that doesn’t come from somewhere. It’s money that’s taken from a paycheck or a small business or from a family farm. It’s money that didn’t get saved, that didn’t get invested, that didn’t create a new job.” Investments will be made in infrastructure, workforce training and a pay bump for state employees.
