The South Dakota Department House of Representatives passed House Joint Resolution 5003.  The resolution will need to be approved by the voters of South Dakota as it amends the state’s constitution.   If added to the constitution, it would require any initiated measure or constitutional amendment which would raise taxes or call for an appropriation of over $10 million or more to receive 60 percent of the vote instead of the usually required simple majority.  Proponents say this helps keep the state in line with its goal of fiscal responsibility, while opponents say it is another way the state legislature is trying to sidestep the will of the voters.
