On December 4, 2012, Daugaard told state legislators that he opposed the expansion of the state's Medicaid program to provide health benefits to adults without disabilities under the Affordable Care Act.
"There are far too many unanswered questions for me to recommend adding 48,000 adults to the 116,000 already on our rolls," he stated.
Daugaard cited higher projections, saying it would add an additional 48,564 residents.
In a June 2013 analysis by The Business Journals, which ranked 45 of the country's 50 governors by their job creation records, Daugaard was ranked number 13.
The five governors omitted from the analysis all assumed office in 2013. After the attacks in Paris, France, on November 13, 2015, many U. governors declared their support or opposition to Syrian refugee resettlement in their states.
The ranking was based on a comparison of the annual private sector growth rate in all 50 states using data from the U. Daugaard expressed uncertainty on the resettlement of Syrian refugees in the state of South Dakota.
Daugaard (born June 11, 1953, in Garretson, South Dakota) is the 32nd and current Governor of South Dakota.
A Republican, he was first elected to the position with running mate Matt Michels on November 2, 2010, easily defeating their Democratic rivals. As governor, Daugaard launched the Better Government Initiative in 2011.
His chief of staff, Tony Venhuizen, said: South Dakota has not received any Syrian refugees, and we do not believe we are going to.
If that changes, the governor would explore the state's options, but it is not at all clear that the state has any say over this.
On March 1, 2016, South Dakota Governor Dennis Daugaard (R) vetoed a bill passed by the Republican-led legislature in February 2016 that would have required transgender students to use the bathroom corresponding to their sex at birth.
