More than 62 percent of South Dakota’s general fund comes from sales and use tax revenue. When those projections fall short, lawmakers must make emergency adjustments when crafting the state's budget. Kim Rueben is a senior fellow in the Urban-Brookings Tax Policy Center at the Urban Institute. She directs the State and Local Finance initiative. She joins us to talk about the state's tax policy.

Dakota Political Junkies Seth Tupper and Dana Ferguson join us for our weekly look at state politics. Today we talk about how counties are charging for booking photos, continued updates on the GEAR-UP scandal, and a West River property rights dispute that brings an age-old conflict to light.
