While the previous president acted unilaterally, without congressional buy-in, I’ve always believed this was an area where Congress should be responsible for finding an acceptable long-term solution. At the Senate Commerce Committee, which I chair, we made significant progress in 2017, and I look forward to continuing our important work on self-driving vehicle technology, expanding access to broadband internet – particularly in rural parts of the country, like South Dakota – and improving transportation security and other infrastructure needs. Finally, it’s never too early to start working on the next farm bill, as I like to say. The current bill, which I helped write, expires later this year, and it’s important that we complete our work on the next bill on time. That’s why I spent 2017 writing seven individual farm bill proposals that cover multiple portions of the overall bill. I hope that by doing a lot of this work early, we can get a final farm bill to the president before the current one expires. On New Year’s Day in 1983, President Reagan said, “[L]et us thank God for life and the blessings He’s put before us. High among them are our families, our freedom, and the opportunities of a new year.” I’m looking forward to what 2018 has in store for South Dakotans and the rest of the American people, and I can’t wait to continue my work in Congress on their behalf. The Republican-led Congress had a successful 2017. We confirmed a record number of the president’s nominees to fill circuit court judgeships, and we confirmed Neil Gorsuch to the U.S. Supreme Court. We used the Congressional Review Act a record number of times to roll back burdensome regulations implemented by the Obama administration. We closed the year by passing historic legislation that reformed our outdated tax code and cut rates for all taxpayers, repealed Obamacare’s unpopular rule that forced Americans to purchase an insurance product they might not want or can’t afford, and opened additional land for domestic energy production. I hope we can keep that momentum going in 2018, and it starts with finding a responsible solution that funds the federal government through the remainder of the fiscal year. While I’ve never been a fan of the congressional budget process, and I strongly $30 on a Summer works more Savesupport reforming it so it AC Tune-Up! efficiently, it’s important for all Americans, particularly our men and women in uniform, that the government is funded for the long term. a call and ensure Just give us My goal is towe’ll that it is.

Secretary Krebs presented the proposal to the Legislature’s Joint Committee on Appropriations on Wednesday, proposing decreases in all expenditures including salaries, travel, contractual services, capital outlay, supplies and materials. Proposed reductions to personal services and operating expenses will amount to a $48,569 reduction to the state general fund, a $11,386 reduction to the Federal Help America Vote Act fund and a $15,427 reduction to other funds. The overall proposed budget reduction amounts to $75,382. “State employees should be stewards of taxpayer dollars,” said Secretary Krebs. “If I see a process that could be completed more efficiently or with less taxpayer dollars - I make it happen.” Each year Secretary Krebs implements a zero-based budgeting policy which is a practice used by businesses, but not commonly used in government. Zero-based budgeting can lower costs by avoiding blanket increases to a prior period's budget. A budget reduction of $44,836 was proposed by the Secretary of State’s office prior to Governor Daugaard’s budget address, however after hearing of the near $33.7 million shortfall Secretary Krebs proposed even further cuts to her budget to make up for lost revenues statewide.
