Four Republican senators were having a good time sporting their mock gold watches in Pierre yesterday. They were handed out as a Valentine's Day treat by a lobbyist. The watches might or might not be a joking reference to the fact that gifts to legislators from lobbyists were a central theme of Initiated Measure 22, the campaign and governing reform bill that won at the polls last November. It was effectively repealed in South Dakota's legislature by House Bill 1069, which was immediately signed by Governor Daugaard. For some background, each Senator's district passed the measure by margins surpassing the statewide victory margin of 51.6%. Nevertheless, just saying "no" to their constituents, all four of the senators voted to repeal IM 22.
