Tornberg calls on Daugaard to veto youth minimum wage bill
Sioux Falls (March 5, 2015) — South Dakota Democratic Party Chair Ann Tornberg called on Governor Dennis Daugaard to veto the youth minimum wage bill that infringes upon the will of South Dakota voters.
“Respect the will of the voters, Governor Daugaard,” Tornberg said. “South Dakotans overwhelmingly supported the initiated measure to raise the minimum wage. Signing this bill tells South Dakotans that their vote just doesn’t matter. Please keep your promise to leave this issue alone.”
Governor Dennis Daugaard has previously promised not to touch the initiated measure to raise the minimum wage. In fact, Daugaard has said changing the law “would be a little bit of an affront to the voters who just adopted it.” Tornberg was heartened to hear that Daugaard has not already broken his promise to South Dakota voters.
“Allowing the state legislature to immediately thwart the will of the voters sets an awful precedence,” Tornberg said. “I know Governor Dennis Daugaard is better than that.”
South Dakota GOP legislators obviously didn’t get the message last year with SB 128 and are back to spreading hate across our state. Last year
with your help, the South Dakota Democratic Party led the fight against discrimination in South Dakota. We need you to stand with us again by signing our petition.
The Senate State Affairs is hearing the GOP’s bill to chip away at your right to propose and vote on laws on Friday, February 6, 2015, at 10am. (You can listen by clicking the podcast link here.)
We can stop this bill right now with your help. Will you email the GOP legislators on the Senate State Affairs committee and tell them to VOTE NO?
Thank you for your help so far. Now let’s put this issue to bed!
