When South Dakotans head to the polls on Tuesday, they’ll be faced with two different measures on short term lending.

A group in Sioux Falls gathered Sunday to try to put a stop to one of them.

Faith leaders and community members took part in a prayer walk today to show their support for Initiated Measure 21, which seeks to put a 36 percent interest cap on short term loans.

The group walked to four different payday loan centers and prayed at each of them.

“We believe that there needs to be a cap because they’ve just had free reign to charge people interest without a cap and it kind of preys on the poor in our community,” said Kathleen Harwell, Church of the Gate’s pastor. 

The measure the group is opposing is Amendment U. It would cap interest at 18 percent, but it would allow lenders to charge a different interstate rate if an agreement is reached between the borrower and lender.
