Video: SD Senator Lance Russell at Legislative Crackerbarrel Meeting

South Dakota Senator Lance Russell spoke at the legislative crackerbarrel meeting hosted by the South Dakota School of Mines & Technology College Republicans in Rapid City this morning.

Russell discussed recent events in the South Dakota legislature. Of particular note was the recent effort of the legislature to repeal Initiated Measure 22, the campaign ballot measure passed by the voters last November.  Russell agreed that IM 22 was a bad measure and had many problems. However, he believed the legislature’s efforts needed to be specifically targeted at the unconstitutional and problematic elements of IM 22, and needed to be done so in a way that was respectful of what the voters intended to accomplish.
