CHICAGO -- South Dakota Gov. Walter D. Miller last week rescinded $36.4 million of budget cuts after a county circuit court ruled that some of the cuts were unconstitutional.

Miller ordered the reductions last month to balance South Dakota's current $602 million budget after the state Supreme Court shut down the state's video lottery. The state's highest court ruled that the video lottery, which generates about $63 million annually, violates the state constitution because it includes games of chance, such as blackjack and keno.
