Daugaard favors repeal of new ethics law

PIERRE, S.D. - Gov. Dennis Daugaard says he supports repeal or major changes to a government ethics overhaul just approved by voters this month, criticizing the campaign for the ballot measure as deceptive.

Daugaard told The Associated Press that he doesn’t plan to include millions of dollars of funding in his December budget proposal for a public campaign finance system established under the new law. Backers pursued the initiative even though nonpartisan South Dakota officials raised constitutional concerns, Daugaard said.

He said he’d support rolling back the measure if it isn’t struck down in court.

“I think it’s very possible the entire measure will be held unconstitutional,” he said. “If not, I’ll be very surprised if the Legislature doesn’t support wholesale changes — if not outright repeal.”
