CPCM 8th Legislative Update
2022 South Dakota Legislative Session Center for the Prevention of Child Maltreatment Week 8 Update – February 28-March 4, 2022
South Dakota lawmakers are closing in on the main run of the South Dakota Legislature, which ends on March 10. They will then take a two-week break and return on March 28 for consideration of any vetoes by Gov. Kristi Noem.
As the session winds down, legislators must still determine the general fund budget for the next fiscal year, hash out federal funding authority and come to agreement on medical marijuana use. In the past, federal dollars made up one third of the budget. Gov. Noem’s budget for the coming fiscal year included about 65 percent of federal funds.
