Petition drive begins for Anti-Corruption Amendment

Sioux Falls, SD Represent South Dakota kicked off a petition drive for the South Dakota Anti-Corruption Amendment Saturday in Sioux Falls

The drive included a training session for volunteers. Supporters said the amendment will change the political system that allows lobbyists and money donors to hold the power.

The amendment also bans foreign money in elections, fights corruption, and holds politicians accountable.

"Theres also the aspect of voter protection in this where it protects innitated measures into the future where if the legislature ever wants to repeal a law passed by the voters again, its all well and good, but the voters get to have the final say on that decision," Doug Kronaizl with Represent SD said.

He says the anti- corruption amendment puts South Dakotans back in charge after state lawmakers repealed Initiated Measure 22 earlier this year.
