Governor Dennis Daugaard is set to leave office with several major accomplishments that included balancing the state budget without raising taxes, boosting teacher pay and road funding along with criminal justice reform. The Governor says on the other hand he regrets not accomplishing more on the reservations.

Daugaard is preparing to deliver his final budget address to the Legislature on December 4th. Governor-elect Kristi Noem takes her oath of office on January 5th.
