South Dakota Governor Signs Law Allowing Corporations to Give to PACs
Senate Bill 39 has been signed by Governor Daugaard and will take effect July 1, 2011.
This law will allow corporations to make contributions to political action committees, contributions previously banned by state campaign finance law.
Under this bill, however, corporate contributions to candidates, candidate committees, or political parties are still prohibited.
