and though the thing to fund teachers pay raise with a penny sales tax raise is still going to be a hard sell. gov dauard just took away an argument by the legislature that they won’t support it for fear of voters coming after them for raising taxes by revealing a poll he had conduct showing that south dakota voters favor the idea and want teachers pay raised. one argument to be against is taken care of but still the fight remains . will be surprise if the thing passes and on daugards desk and south dakota teachers get their long over due pay raise in the end.
