HB1234 now called Teacher Bonus Bill by the governor as it heads for referral

About an hour ago, Secretary of State Jason Gant tweeted: “Around 30,000 signatures turned in today for petitions to bring HB 1234 to a public vote.”

Gov. Dennis Daugaard also issued this statement at 11:35 a.m. concerning the referral of  HB1234:“I’m not surprised that the Teacher Bonus Bill was referred because the teachers’ union put a lot of work into collecting signatures. I look forward to furthering the discussion with the people of South Dakota on this very important topic. The bill is aimed at improving student achievement by channeling extra money directly to our best teachers and phasing out teacher tenure.”

It sounds like the governor is attempting to paint the referral as purely a teacher-driven issue. He comes very close to saying that the only South Dakotans pushing for the petition drive are educators.
