Governor Kristi Noem delivered her budget address before the South Dakota Legislature at the State Capitol in Pierre yesterday. The governor noted the state's 19-million-dollar surplus at the end of fiscal year 2020 and an unemployment rate of 3.6% - down from 11% in April.
The governor also opened her address by doubling down on her COVID-19 policies which have become national news.
