2022 Ballot Question Debate: Yes on Amendment C

Jon Hansen

The interview posted above is from SDPB's daily public affairs show, In the Moment with Lori Walsh.

Amendment C was introduced as House Joint Resolution 5003 by Republican Speaker Pro Tempore Jon Hansen in February of last year.

This will appear on the ballot in South Dakota June 7, 2022

A "yes" vote supports requiring a three-fifths (60%) supermajority vote for the approval of ballot measures placed on the ballot through citizen initiative or referred to the ballot by the state legislature that increase taxes or fees or that would require the state to appropriate $10 million or more in the first five fiscal years.

A "no" vote opposes requiring a three-fifths (60%) supermajority vote for the approval of ballot measures that increase taxes or fees or that would require the state to appropriate $10 million or more in the first five fiscal years, thereby continuing to allow such measures to be adopted by a simple majority vote.
