The South Dakota Association of Healthcare Organizations has joined a large coalition formed by the South Dakota Chamber of Commerce and Industry to defeat Constitutional Amendment W in South Dakota’s general election this fall.

Amendment W is an initiated measure funded by out-of-state donors that creates a new article of the South Dakota constitution and declares the new article superior to all other sections of the constitution. It creates a non-elected tribunal called the “State Government Accountability Board”, forces the legislature and governor to fund it and allows that board to go to court for more money.
