Grassroots organizers came together to protect the minimum wage and kick the pay-day lenders out of our state. We'll beat Amendment C too.

Amendment C FAQ

What happens if Amendment C passes?

1. A PERMANENT CHANGE TO CITIZEN INITIATIVES: A superficial 60% vote threshold will become part of the state constitution. Future laws like medical marijuana will be subject to it FOREVER.

 

2. NO ACCOUNTABILITY: the South Dakota Legislature gets all the power here — not the voters of South Dakota. Who knows what they will do next?

 

3. NOT NEEDED: South Dakotans have been using citizen initiatives since 1898. Why should we change the vote threshold now? If 50% is good enough to get elected to the legislature it’s good enough for initiatives too.

How can I help?
