PIERRE, S.D. (AP) – Governor Dennis Daugaard says home construction is a significant source of employment, so he’s designated April as New Homes month in South Dakota.
In a proclamation, Daugaard says every new home supports at least three full-time jobs.
The governor says every 1,000 new homes generate an average of $117 million in income for South Dakota residents and $15.2 million in tax revenue to support schools and local communities.
Daugaard also says home construction supports jobs in a variety of industries, including timber production, manufacturing and retailing.
