A petition signed by more than 5 percent of the state's qualified electors was filed with the secretary of state's office. At the time, South Dakota had an indirect initiated state statute system. Therefore, the secretary of state transmitted the proposed law to the House and Senate, where it was known as House Bill 365. The legislature, in turn, choose to submit the matter to a popular vote, rather than enacting the measure directly.[2]
