Paying Down Debt To Make College More Affordable by Gov. Dennis Daugaard: About 15 years ago, Linda and I added a small addition to our house near Dell Rapids. We took out a small mortgage on our home to pay for that improvement. Until about three years ago, we were making a monthly payment against that debt. Every once in a while, when we had extra cash, we paid more than was required so that we could pay it off faster. When state government builds a building, we “issue bonds” rather than “take out a mortgage.” But it works in basically the same way. The state commits to making regular payments for many years to repay these debts. And if we repay early, we can stop making the payments. A couple of years ago, our state received some unexpected, one-time revenue. I joined with the Legislature to dedicate that money to early repayment of tens of millions of dollars in debt. The payments we’d been making were repurposed to increase state aid for K-12 schools, Medicaid providers and state employees. This year, I am proposing something similar. Our state’s rainy day funds have increased beyond our targets, and the state again has some onetime revenues. In my budget, I proposed that the state use $42 million to repay debts from building projects at our state universities and technical schools. The state universities and the technical institutes will no longer need to make payments against these debts. They have committed to use the annual savings to avoid increasing tuition. If my budget proposal is adopted, tuition and fees will be frozen – there will be no increase next fall. We all read about the increasing cost of education and about student loan debt. We do not want students to be forced to leave school because they cannot afford it, or to graduate with a too-heavy debt load. The best way to avoid that is to make school more affordable by holding down tuition. This is a very wise use of a one-time windfall in state money. We cannot use these funds to pay for ongoing costs, such as teacher salaries or Medicaid payments. The best use of one-time funds is to pay off a debt, secure an asset, or create an asset. By eliminating these debts this year, we are making college more affordable and putting our state on a stronger financial footing, for years to come.

South Dakotans Appointed to Cattlemen's Beef Board WASHINGTON – Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack has appointed 37 members to the Cattlemens Beef Promotion and Research Board. Thirty-six appointees will serve 3-year terms and one appointee will serve a 1-year term. South Dakotans appointed to the board are Eric J. Sumption, Frederick, S.D. and Tammy Basel, Union Center, S.D. They are filling positions previously held by Linda Gilbert of Buffalo, and Danni Beer of Keldron, SD who both completed two, three year terms. Currently serving on the CBB representing South Dakota are Vaughn Meyer, Reva and Gary Sharp, Bath, SD. According to a press release from USDA, the 100-member board is authorized by the Beef Promotion and Research Act of 1985 and are responsible for oversight and management of the Beef Check-off funds. The Secretary selects the appointees nominated by beef, veal, dairy, and importers-certified organizations. The board contracts with established national, nonprofit, industry-governed organizations to implement programs of promotion, research, consumer information, industry information, foreign marketing, and producer communications. Research and promotion programs are industry-funded and were authorized by Congress in 1966. Since then, Congress has authorized the establishment of more than 20 research and promotion boards. They empower farmers and ranchers to leverage their own resources to develop new markets, strengthen existing markets, and conduct important research and promotion activities. AMS provides oversight, paid for by industry assessments, which ensures fiscal responsibility, program efficiency, and fair treatment of participating stakeholders.
