Initiated Measure 22 Continues to Dominate Crackerbarrel Discussions

Initiated Measure 22 has been officially repealed as of this past week, but it continues to be a hotly debated topic at crackerbarrel meetings. The Rapid City Journal reports that most lawmakers agreed that the ethics reform measure in its current form needed to be repealed, but voters are concerned by the legislature overturning a voter-approved initiative. Some legislators agree with their constituents and would have preferred the courts to decide on the measure's constitutional validity.
