Broadcaster Press 5 March 20, 2018 www.broadcasteronline.com 2018 Legislative Session Volunteer Fire Assistance Accomplishments Grants Now Open By Gov. Dennis Daugaard As I write this, the South Dakota State Legislature is concluding the main run of its legislative session. This has been a productive year in Pierre, and I think South Dakotans can be proud of what has been accomplished. Most importantly, our state continued its streak, going back to statehood, of a balanced budget. Our budget is honestly balanced. We used ongoing revenue streams to fund ongoing expenses, and one-time revenues only for one-time purposes. We do not rely on accounting tricks. We maintain a budget reserve fund equal to ten percent of expenditures. It is for this reason that our state has earned and maintained a AAA bond rating, which speaks to our fiscal strength. When I proposed a state budget in December, revenue growth was very slow. For that reason, I was not able to propose inflationary increases for education, Medicaid providers, or state employee salaries. Fortunately, our state’s economy has ticked upward in the last three months, so the state budget we passed will include increases for all of those recipients. We were also able to allocate dollars to the state employee health plan, to keep employee costs as low as possible. The budget also in- cludes funding to continue the dual credit program for high school students, to contribute toward a new Precision Ag facility at SDSU and a health education building at Lake Area Tech, and to construct a state veterans cemetery near Sioux Falls. The Building South Dakota economic development also received a reliable, long-term revenue source. This year, the legislature passed numerous bills to modernize our state’s alcohol industry. The emerging micro-brewing industry will be able to expand and to sell their products to bars and consumers. Farm wineries gained greater flexibility to operate as well. For the first time in decades, the entire alcohol title was rewritten, increasing clarity and easing the regulatory burden. We also recognized that the open waters compromise, which the legislature passed last summer in a special session, is working, and we passed legislation to make the compromise permanent. Although access to public waters will always be an issue, after twenty years we have finally brought certainty and found an answer that is working for landowners and sportsmen. Bills were also brought to strengthen our ties to our tribes. Legislation was passed allowing tribal governments to extradite their members back from county jails, if they choose. We also passed legislation recognizing the right of tribal members to wear traditional regalia, such as an eagle feather, at high school graduations. Significantly, every single accomplishment I have mentioned was passed on a bipartisan basis. With the partisan gridlock in Washington, South Dakotans can be proud that our legislature takes on big issues in a practical, bipartisan fashion. I first came to Pierre for the legislative session in 1997 when I was first elected a state senator. I spent six years as a senator, eight years as lieutenant governor, and now eight years as governor. Over those twenty-two sessions, I have served with hundreds of good people – men and women, Republicans and Democrats, farmers, teachers, nurses and attorneys. South Dakota’s legislators are not career politicians. They come to Pierre for a few weeks to serve their friends and neighbors, and then they return home to live amongst the people they serve. In the coming days, if you happen to see one of your legislators, please say thank you for a job well done. RAPID CITY, S.D. – Grant applications for the Volunteer Fire Assistance (VFA) program will be accepted from March 12 to April 30, 2018. The VFA program allows the South Dakota Department of Agriculture’s Wildland Fire Division (SDWF) to provide volunteer fire departments funding through the U.S. Forest Service. This funding is used to organize, train and equip fire departments in rural areas to prevent and suppress wildland fires. Rural fire departments or organizations who buy fire suppression, education and prevention equipment can be reimbursed for the cost through these grant funds. The maximum grant this year is 50 percent of the project costs or $4000, whichever is less. This grant can be used for either structural or wildland fire projects. Eligibility requirements, administrative considerations, parameters for uses of VFA funding and the application can be found at: http://wildlandfire.sd.gov/ VFDquicklinks/vfdquick.aspx. All applications must be received by mail and postmarked no later than April 30, 2018. Grants will be awarded near the middle of May. For more information, contact Jim Burk, assistant chief with SDWF at jim.burk@ state.sd.us or by calling 605.393.8055. South Dakota Wildland Fire can be found on Twitter @SDWildlandFire and on Facebook by searching SD Wildland Fire. Archery Honors Up For Grabs At 2018 GFP-NASP Tournaments PIERRE, S.D. – Young people from across South Dakota will show off their archery skills at the 9th annual National Archery in the Schools Program (NASP) State Tournaments. This year’s two tournaments will include both a bull’s eye target tournament and a 3D target tournament. The bull’s eye target tournament will be held on Saturday, March 24, at East Middle School in Rapid City. The 3D target tournament is scheduled for Friday and Saturday, May 4 and 5 at the NFAA/Easton Archery Facility in Yankton. The tournaments are sponsored by South Dakota Game, Fish and Parks (GFP) and will host hundreds of young archers from across the state. Students will compete for individual and team honors in three age divisions. The top three individual and team winners will receive trophies, and the overall individual winners from the bull’s eye target tournament will receive a free custom-made bow courtesy of GFP. All students receive a free tournament t-shirt. Students who participate in NASP within their schools or home school program are eligible for the competition. “It’s gratifying to see so many schools introduce the sport of archery into their curriculum,” said Patrick Klotzbach, NASP Coordinator for GFP. “Studies have shown that students who participate in NASP like school better and attend school more often. NASP is a great partnership between GFP and local school districts.” There is no charge to attend the tournaments, and the public is welcome. Individuals who wish to volunteer with the tournament may contact outdoorprogramming@gmail.com or call 605.220.2130.
