The Republican governor delivers her budget address in Pierre on Tuesday. In just a few weeks, legislators will be in session to take up her proposals and hear from state agencies as they craft a final budget.

The state will be seeing less money as an internet access tax comes to an end. That will mean up to $25 million less in revenue.

Overall state revenue is also running nearly $4 million behind projections over the past four months.
