On June 16, the Blue Ribbon Task Force will be in Sioux Falls to discuss the following question (and possibly the only question, but time will tell): What possibilities are there to meaningfully fund education for our kids and our communities?
GOED- $2.49 million. They saw an increase of $15 million from other funding sources, so I think that they can do without their general funds amount.
Bureau of Finance and Management- $4 million. They say an increase of $5 million from other funds. For some reason it says that the Governor would like to increase this areas total budget for 2016 by more than $33 million.
Bureau of Administration- $3 million. This agency saw an increase of over $6 million between 2014 and 2015. The governor wants to add another $1.6 million for 2016.
Next is from Legislature- $644,000. This is basically the increase in "personal services" between 2014 and 2015. It is not much, but every little bit helps.
Department of Agriculture- $600,000. This was the general funds increase between 2014 and 2015. It also saw an increase of federal and other funds of nearly $4 million.
