Lawmakers Bring Lawsuit After Approval of Initiated Measure 22

On November 8th, South Dakota voters approved Initiated Measure 22.  This measure is also known as the "Anti-Corruption Act" and several lawmakers will file a lawsuit to alter the measure, reports the Rapid City Journal. A $100 limit on gifts to legislators is one of the provisions at the heart of the lawsuit. The gift limitations apply to employers and familiy members of legislators. Other concerns in the lawsuit are the creation of an ethics comission as well as a publicly financed campaign program for legislative and statewide candidates. 

Americans for Prosperity, which is based in Arlington Virginia, has financed most of the opposition against Initiated Measure 22.
