Federal Judge to decide IM24 as early as this week

Local News

A Federal Judge in Aberdeen says he could rule on South Dakota’s Initiated Measure 24 as early as the end of this week.

You may remember that voters approved of IM-24 in November.

The measure bans individuals, political action committees and others outside of South Dakota from making contributions to ballot question committees.

Then last month, a grassroots ballot question committee announced that it’s suing South Dakota’s governor and secretary of state saying the measure is unconstitutional and could hurt future elections.

On Friday, U.S. District Judge Charles Kornmann told attorneys that he would issue a written opinion on the matter as early as this week and no later than June 1.
