AG releases draft explanations for proposed Constitutional Amendment and Initiated Measure

Attorney General Marty Jackley has released draft language for a proposed Constitutional amendment and initiative.  Both the proposed Constitutional amendment and initiative would prohibit sales taxes on anything sold for human consumption.

Jackley said the amendment would severely limit the abilities of future legislatures and Governors to make tax changes.

Jackley said he is just trying to write a clear explanation.

The amendment sponsor is Rick Weiland of Sioux Falls, who also backed the amendment to expand Medicaid in the last election.

Both draft explanations can be found on the Draft Ballot Explanations page on the Attorney General’s website. The proposed Constitutional Amendment can be found here. The proposed Initiated Measure can be found here.
