SD budget panel discusses state aid to schools


       PIERRE, S.D. (AP) _ The South Dakota Legislature's budget-writing committee is taking a look at state financial aid to school districts.
       The Joint Appropriations Committee is meeting Thursday to discuss the system used to distribute financial aid to schools.
       Gov. Dennis Daugaard has proposed that state aid to schools be boosted by 3 percent next year, nearly double the inflationary increase required by law.
       However, school districts are asking the Legislature to increase state aid by 3.8 percent to put spending per student back where it was before budget cuts were imposed in 2011.
       The Legislature will not make a final decision on financial aid to schools until the state budget is passed in March.
