Amendment C defeated in Tuesday’s election
South Dakota voters soundly defeat a constitutional amendment that would have made it more difficult to pass some ballot measures.
Sixty-seven percent of those voting in Tuesday’s primary election said “no” to Amendment C.
The measure would have required a 60% approval threshold on citizen-initiated ballot measures that raise taxes or spend more than $10 million within five years of enactment.
The amendment was placed on the ballot by the South Dakota legislature.
