Food tax repeal could be on the 2024 South Dakota ballot

A measure to repeal the sales tax on food could be on the 2024 South Dakota General Election ballot.

Dakotans for Health announced Wednesday that it is submitting its Constitutional Amendment and Initiated Law petition forms to repeal South Dakota’s rfood tax to the Secretary of State for final approval. The group will begin collecting signatures in the coming days.

Co-founder Rick Weiland noted that Republican Governor Kristi Noem’s recent comment that she would sign Dakotans for Health Grocery Tax Repeal petition was welcome news.

Weiland says South Dakota has a rich history of voters taking matters into their own hands when the legislature fails to act or overreaches.

He says the state can afford to do this and needs to do it now.
