South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem laid out her $5.7 billion spending plan for fiscal year 2023 to lawmakers Tuesday, including a 6% raise for state employees, teachers and health care providers.

Noem also is asking lawmakers to put about 14.2% of the budget rather than the traditional 10% in reserves as the state will end this fiscal year with surpluses.

"We are projecting to have $215.5 million in one-time dollars for fiscal year 2022,” Noem said. “And we are projecting an additional $157.6 million in ongoing general funds.”

She called the 6% pay raise for state employees and health care providers “unprecedented but necessary."

“Many of these positions in these three areas are not keeping pace with their counterparts in the private sector or other states,” Noem said. “They deserve our support. Let's give it to them."
