PIERRE, S.D. – Attorney General Marty Jackley announced today that Circuit Court Judge Mark Barnett has issued a preliminary injunction in the Initiated Measure 22 lawsuit.
“It is my duty and responsibility as Attorney General to defend measures adopted by the voters and I will continue to do so,” said Jackley.
Initiated Measure 22 was approved by the majority of South Dakota voters last month as an act to revise State campaign finance and lobbying laws, create a publicly funded campaign finance program, create an ethics commission, and appropriate funds.
