Senate Bill Eight
The Senate State Affairs Committee sends a bill reinforcing campaign funding limits to the full chamber.
South Dakota law allows four different campaign committees – ballot question, candidate campaign, political action, and political committees.
Democratic Senator Craig Kennedy of Yankton supports Senate Bill Eight. It’s a measure also backed by the Initiative and Referendum Task Force that met last summer. Kennedy says the legislation makes sure a campaign cannot create a way to raise more funds than what’s allowed.
