Meet the Legislator

Jack Kolbeck

South Dakota Senate


What issue do you anticipate this session that may have the greatest impact on the business community and why?

Since our Revenues are going back to normal, as a member of the Joint Appropriations and Senate Appropriations, I will be working with these committees and the legislature to manage our revenues to maintain a balanced budget. We will do this by considering the needs of education, state employees, health care workers and veterans. This will be a much different year than the past three years where we have had excess funds from both the Federal Government and State Revenues. Nursing homes, child care, infrastructure and a tuition freeze will also be on my priority list.
