State Senator Jean Hunhoff won’t take position on grocery tax repeal until 2023

YANKTON, S.D.(WNAX)- South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem made a campaign pledge to cut the four and a half percent sales tax on groceries if she is re-elected. That came up during a District 18 legislative forum sponsored by Yankton Interchange.

Senator Jean Hunhoff said she couldn’t take a position yet.

Hunhoff says most state sales tax dollars go to a few programs.

Hunhoff says she needs to see details before she can form an opinion.

Hunhoff, a republican, faces democrat Fred Bender in next week’s election.
