WNAX: GOPers panicking over lost federal dollars

Boil up another plate of crow: South Dakota Rebumblicans are losing their federal welfare.
Decreasing federal support for state agencies could put more pressure on the state’s general fund. Representative Jean Hunhoff of Yankton says they are seeing agencies lose more of their federal funding. Hunhoff, a member of the Appropriations Committee, has been hearing budget requests from state agencies. She says the Labor Department had to cut thirteen employees when they lost some federal funding. She is concerned that agencies will want state dollars to replace the federal dollars that were lost. Hunhoff says some agencies are being paid for services provided to other agencies, but that is not new money. Hunhoff took part in the first District 18 legislative forum Saturday in Yankton. [WNAX]
The SDGOP and Americans for Prosperity Poverty should be careful what they wish for because it might crawl into their beds and rob them.
