The SD legislative session is upon us and will kick off on January 8 with the State of the State address by newly elected Governor Kristi Noem. It is expected that additional information will be delivered regarding the state’s budget and other priorities as well. Now is a great time to contact your local legislators and encourage them to support funding increases for wages and operations for Community Support Providers. The process is easy and contact information can be found on the Legislative Research Council website https://sdlegislature.gov/ . Bill are already being filed and are listed on the LRC website.
