South Dakota: Wisconsin group files to begin initiative on abortion law

The Argus Leader reports: An out-of-state group that opposes South Dakota's ban of most abortions filed paperwork Tuesday to begin collecting signatures for a referendum vote.

If 16,728 signatures are collected by mid-June, South Dakotans would vote Nov. 7 to approve or reject the state abortion law.

The paperwork filed Tuesday lists the sponsor of the petition drive as Noah Beck Hahn-Walter of Basic-Abortion-Rights Network of Waukesha, Wis. ...

Secretary of State Chris Nelson said there's nothing in South Dakota law that prevents an out-of-state group from beginning the petition drive. -- Argus Leader - News
