Ballot Initiative Law Declared Illegal; State Appeals

8th_circuit_seal.png

A legal challenge to a dead law goes before the Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals on Wednesday, Dec. 16.

In 2019, the South Dakota legislature put restrictions on proponents of ballot initiatives.

In January 2020, a federal judge found the law to be unconstitutional.

The 2020 legislature replaced it with a new law, but the state still appealed the judge's ruling on the old one.
