SIGN THE PETITION: Voters have spoken, and said that elected officials should serve the public interest. Legislators should abide by the Anti-Corruption Act -- not override the will of voters by repealing it.

BREAKING UPDATE: Thanks to citizen outcry, the South Dakota legislature has delayed by one week its plan to repeal the ethics & anti-corruption reforms voters passed last November. We must speak out before the final vote to stop the legislature’s power grab for good.

The Koch Brothers tried to stop the South Dakota Government Accountability & Anti-Corruption Act, which puts the people back in charge of elections and bans lawmakers from receiving unlimited gifts from lobbyists -- but the Koch Brothers lost, and the people won.

Now that bill -- and the will of the people -- is under attack by the South Dakota state legislature, which has declared a fake "state of emergency" so they can attempt to gut the Anti-Corruption Act. Meanwhile, the Koch Brothers’ dark money astroturf group, Americans for Prosperity South Dakota, is cheering them on.

South Dakotans said with their votes that they want to put a check on lobbyists, promote higher ethical standards, increase overall accountability of public officials, and ensure the voices of everyday people remain the focus of our democracy. The Koch brothers want to roll back these ethics reforms -- but lawmakers need to remember they work for voters -- not wealthy donors.

Already, hundreds of Americans have called state Senate Majority Leader Blake Curd at 605-773-3821 to demand that he stand down. Because the people spoke out, Curd has now pushed back the repeal vote by one week. This national attention has them running scared, so let’s keep the pressure on and stop this for good.

Please sign the petition to stop the South Dakota legislature’s power grab -- then call State Senate Majority Leader Blake Curd at 605-773-3821 and tell him to stand down.
