Amended South Dakota Campaign Finance Bill Reverts to Pre-IM 22 Limits
The South Dakota House of Representatives passed an amended version of Senate Bill 54 restoring campaign finance limits to pre-Initiated Measure 22 levels.
Senate Bill 54 was originally introduced to establish tougher campaign finance restrictions to preserve the spirit of Initiated Measure 22 after lawmakers repealed the voter approved measure earlier this session.
Prior to passing the House with a vote of 55 to 12, the bill was amended many times before arriving at its current state. Senate Bill 54 now goes back to the Senate for approval of the amended version.
