State Chamber Supports Some Change To Ballot Issue Process

The Government Accountability Task Force met Monday in Pierre.
The committee is debating possible changes to the ballot issue process, and the groups associated with those.  One proposed bill would allow ballot question committees to continue from one election cycle to another.
Dave Owen, President of the South Dakota Chamber of Commerce and Industry, spoke in favor of that change..

Owen says the current law is very limiting…

Owen says his group is often involve in more than one ballot question at a time…

The task force could possibly make recommendations on legislation for the 2018 session.
