Amendment O could help fund education

Posted:

Changes to the distribution of a South Dakota trust fund are up for vote this election.
 
Amendment O would require 4% of the cement plant trust fund to be transferred yearly for the support of education.
 
In 2001 the state placed $238 million dollars in the cement plant trust fund.

Since then $12 million dollars from that fund have been transferred every year to the state's general fund.
 
The legislature has used the fund to support education under certain circumstances in the past.
