Lisa Furlong on behalf of South Dakotan’s for Fair Lending turned in what a source tells me was an incredible 60,287 signatures to place their ballot measure to limit the loan rate for short term loans to 18% in front of South Dakotans. Slightly more than the number turned in for the Marsy’s law petition this week, it may set a new record for the number of signatures obtained.
It also stacks up against the Hildebrand petition as gathering an incredible 3 times the number.
And hold on to your hats…. There’s more to come on this story!
