SD Ballot measures in 2012

Once again an ineffective state legislature leads us to these measures;

Type Title Subject Description
LRCA Corporate Language Amendment Language Deals with modernizing language dealing with corporations in the state.
LRCA Travel Reimbursement Amendment Admin. of gov’t. Would strike a travel reimbursement provision from the state constitution.

LRCA Cement-Plant Trust Amendment State budgets Would change amount taken each year from state cement-plant trust fund.
VR Referred Law 14 Taxes Would dedicate part of tax revenues for grants to some business projects in the state.

C – Would agree. Visit the AL poll question today. I think it is at around 70% refer to voters.

Ruf – Would also agree, I have often felt most major legislation, especially in SD, and when it comes to how our tax dollars are spent, should go to a public vote. Abortion is a great example, while our legislature thought we are an anti-choice state, we in fact are a pro-choice state. We proved this, twice. I also think voters getting to choose if we want a 1% tax increase (to feed the healthcare monsters in our state) is wise. Personally, it is going to fail, big time. I suspect around 70% will reject this tax increase.

Thanks. As I’ve long written, the SD legislature is and continues to be, incompetent.

I sometimes wonder if at least 50% are mentally ill? And I am not being sarcastic.
