Tim Johnson's efforts helped USDA rural development deliver

In stark contrast to his GOP successor former US Senator Tim Johnson knew how to help real South Dakotans.
USDA Rural Development Acting State Director Bruce Jones announced today that $463.8 million was invested in rural South Dakota communities from Oct. 1, 2013, through Sept. 30, 2014. Since 2009, $2.4 billion has been invested in South Dakota’s economy and of that total, $229.4 million has been secured for projects on reservations. For more information on reservation projects, see the Rural Development Report on Tribal Projects in South Dakota 2009-2014.
