The group promoting a constitutional amendment in the spirit of Initiated Measure 22 held a forum in Rapid City to discuss the new Voter Protection and Anti-Corruption Amendment.

The stop in Rapid City is one of many the group is holding across the state in the next couple weeks

Around seven people showed up for the Represent South Dakota forum at the Rapid City public library.

It’s one of nine stops the group is making to organize and place another ballot question similar to Initiated Measure 22 on the ballot.

The legislation started as clean up language in state statute regarding campaign finance laws. The bill was amended several times as it worked through the legislature.
