South Dakota State Representative Scott Craig is changing his vote on HB1182, the Governor’s plan to increase South Dakota Teacher’s salaries and decrease property taxes.
Rapid City, SD- South Dakota State Representative Scott Craig from District 33 will change his vote on HB1182. Craig says, “The 23 nay votes Thursday on the House Floor were by House Members working out a plan to increase teacher salaries without raising a tax. Unfortunately, for most teachers across the state the vote conveyed a lack of support and appreciation, and they are disheartened. I am looking forward to a seeing a second plan filed in the legislature and I believe both plans should be debated in the Legislative body, and the greater of the two plans should prevail. I’m voting to keep this plan moving forward and I’ll consider earnestly any other plan filed in the Legislature.”
