South Dakota Amendment B, also known as the act authorizing the provision of certain services to all children of school age, appeared on the November 2, 2004 election ballot in South Dakota as a legislatively-referred constitutional amendment, where it was defeated.
Text of measure
The language that appeared on the ballot:
The Constitution generally prohibits the Legislature from giving state money or property to sectarian schools. However, the Constitution allows the Legislature to authorize the loan of nonsectarian textbooks to children of school age, including those attending sectarian schools.
Amendment B, if adopted, would change the Constitution to also allow the Legislature to authorize participation in food and transportation services for children of school age, including those attending sectarian schools.
