South Dakota Municipal League
South Dakota Municipal League

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

The South Dakota Municipal League opposes Amendment C, and its executive director Yvonne Taylor joins us to explain.

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.

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.
