PIERRE, S.D.(WNAX)- South Dakota Attorney General Marty Jackley has released draft language for a proposed Constitutional amendment and initiative that would prohibit sales taxes on anything sold for human consumption.

Jackley says the amendment would severely limit the abilities of future legislatures and Governors to make tax changes.

Jackley says he is just trying to write a clear explanation.

The amendment sponsor is Rick Weiland of Sioux Falls who also backed the amendment to expand Medicaid in the last election.
