South Dakota Gambling Amendment (2010)
|Not on Ballot|
| This measure did not or |
will not appear on a ballot
The South Dakota Gambling Amendment did not appear on the November 2, 2010 statewide ballot in South Dakota as a legislatively-referred constitutional amendment. In February 2009 a vote by the House of Representatives shot down the bill.
The proposed amendment to the state constitution would have allowed unlimited gambling by removing all current gambling limits. The state Senate voted 20-15 on February 9,2009 to place the constitutional amendment on the 2010 election ballot. However, in late February the House voted ten to three against the proposal.
According to officials the amendment was found to be "problematic" when Sen. Scott Heidepriem, the measure's author, came under criticism for an undisclosed conflict of interest regarding the gaming measure.
