South Dakota Amendment B (1990) was a measure relating to eligibility for legislative office. It failed with 152,175 votes opposed.

Text of measure

Our State Constitution now prohibits a State Legislator, during the term for which the Legislator was elected or one year thereafter, from being directly or indirectly interested in any contract with the State or any county when the contract, or its funding, is authorized by any law passed during the term for which the Legislator was elected. This Constitutional Amendment would create an exception to this restriction which would allow a State Legislator to enter into a contract with the State or any county if the contract is awarded on competitive bids.[1]
