The Appropriations Committee is a joint standing committee of the South Dakota State Legislature.

Per the Senate and House Rules, joint committees of the South Dakota State Legislature are appointed by the President Pro Tempore and by the Speaker of the House.[1][2] A joint committee may be established if there is disagreement between the houses on an amended bill or resolution. The chair of a joint committee is the chair of the committee before which the bill or resolution is waiting for approval.[3]

The Senate and House Committees may meet in joint session or form combined subcommittees to hear agency budget presentations. All Joint Appropriations Committee action on the general appropriations bill shall be approved by a majority vote of the Joint Committee unless a member calls for a separate vote of the House Appropriations Committee and the Senate Appropriations Committee in which case a majority vote of each committee is required for adoption. Such action shall constitute the committee report of the house of origin on the general appropriation bill.[4][5]
