Should South Dakota give grants to businesses that want to build in the state? That's the question voters will soon have to answer.
Referred Law 14 will be on the ballot when early voting begins on Friday and both sides are trying to state their case now.
Voters will have to decide if they want a program that takes a portion of the money collected in contractor's excise tax and puts it in a so-called 'Large Project Development Fund.' In the past, the money has been used to give construction tax breaks to ethanol plants, wind farms and manufacturing companies in South Dakota.
While supporters say the fund will be crucial to attracting businesses to the state, opponents of the plan say it creates a program that will dole out millions to corporations without any accountability.
