No issue with line-item veto

Legislators returned to the Capitol this morning to wrap up the 2013 legislative session by taking a look at three vetoes by Gov. Dennis Daugaard.

 

The only veto related to K-12 education was the governor’s decision to line-item veto a portion of House Bill 1137, which provides $5.8 million in one-time funds for schools, is not expected to affect the funds provided for schools. ASBSD supported the bill.

 

Gov. Daugaard changed the appropriation of one-time dollars based on a district’s student enrollment for fiscal year 2013 instead of FY12. Gov. Daugaard noted the FY13 enrollment, which would use fall 2012 figures, would be a more accurate for the one-time appropriation.

 

Representatives voted 65-1 to accept the governor’s change.
