Ballot explanation for Senate Bill 201 referral

The final ballot statement for the potential referral of Senate Bill 201 has been released by the South Dakota Attorney General’s Office.  It was filed with the Secretary of State’s Office on Monday, July 8th. 

Senate Bill 201, which was passed by this year’s Legislature and signed by the Governor, would provide new statutory requirements for regulating linear transmission facilities, and to allow counties to impose a surcharge on certain pipeline companies. A group has circulated petitions to put the issue on this November’s general election ballot. The Secretary of State’s Office determined that the petitions did have enough valid signatures to qualify for the general election ballot.
