Rick Weiland of Dakotans for Health comment on the grocery tax repeal

YANKTON, S.D.(WNAX)- Differences of opinion between the South Dakota Attorney General and the Legislative Research Council is delaying a ballot initiative petition drive that would eliminate the state sales tax on groceries.

“Dakotans for Health” Co-founder Rick Weiland says they can’t get a clear explanation.

Weiland says starting with new language makes their petition drive more difficult.

Weiland says the deadlines for submitting petition signatures is also under a court challenge.

The group had submitted their proposed ballot language before Governor Kristi Noem proposed dropping the sales tax.
