Dakotans for Health to do petition drive for repeal of the grocery tax

YANKTON, S.D.(WNAX)- Following the failure of the South Dakota legislature to cut the food tax, “Dakotans for Health” will now move ahead with a petition drive to repeal the tax.

Spokesman Rick Weiland says they will now send their petitions to the Secretary of States office for final approval.

Weiland says they want the options of an initiative and a constitutional amendment.

Weiland says he believes there is wide public support for the food tax cut.

The group has to get their petitions turned into the Secretary of States office by November to make the general election ballot next year.
