Institute For Free Speech Files Lawsuit Regarding Two South Dakota Ballot Issues


A national non-profit organization says two measures on South Dakota’s November ballot may violate your First Amendment Rights. 

A federal lawsuit says the measures in question are Constitutional Amendment W and Initiated Measure 24.  But the Institute for Free Speech says it can’t tell you why the measures would affect your rights without violating state law. 

IFS has filed a lawsuit against Attorney General Marty Jackley and Secretary of State Shantel Krebs.  It claims South Dakota laws violate the U.S. Constitution by restricting the organization’s rights to publicize views of ballot measures.

It’s asking for permission from a federal judge to publish an analysis of the measures.
