  1. I’m guessing since being a registered independent in SD does not mean you belong to the independent political party that that section of 69 will be challenged and stricken.

    In SD being an independent means you are not associated with a party.

    1. Yeah, I thought it was gone too.

      Good coverage of this session PP! Best blog coverage of SD’s legislative session!

  2. One of the claims by those opposing a minimum wage hike is–minimum wage is meant for those entering the job market (young people). Guess it was a typical lie.

  3. It’s ridiulous to call SB 177 an afront to the voters. The initiated measure would have passed by a bigger margain if it had a lower rate for youth. The “one size fits all mandate” was a big reason that some voters voted against it………………………Does this story mean that SBs 100, 136, and 159 won’t be signed?

    1. Thank the good Lord we have these people in power to interpret what we really wanted as we are like children without their help.

  4. When the law of unintended consequences kicks in, are people who reach the age of 18 going to lose their jobs to kids making the lower minimum wage?
