South Dakota state employees will get a one-point two percent raise this year, after revenue numbers improved during the legislative session. South Dakota State Employees Organization Executive Director Eric Olilla says it’s a start.


 Olilla says they still are not sure what their health care cost increases will be.


Olilla says there is some interest in looking at the status of the state health insurance plan during the summer.


State employees had gone two years without a pay raise.
