Legislative Donations


For three decades Dakota Rural Action has help South Dakotans have an active and independent voice in the legislative process.  Help us keep it going for another three decades and beyond by donating to our Legislative Fund!

So far this session in Pierre Dakota Rural Action has:

  • Helped pass a Country of Origin Labeling bill for beef out of committee

  • Helped pass a industrial hemp bill out of committee

  • Protected direct democracy by helping put pressure on the legislature over the repeal of IM 22. Despite the success of the repeal, the pressure has convinced legislators to withdraw other bills threatening direct democracy.

  • Supported the passage of Certified Professional Midwife licensing in Committee and on the Senate floor.

  • Supported the passage of a bill to encourage the use of native grasses and pollinator-friendly forbs at Dept. of Transportation rest stop remodels.

  • Fought back (and we’re continuing to fight back) on several bills that undermine citizens’ right to initiative, referendum, and constitutional amendment.

  • Provided weekly detailed Legislative Updates as well as Action Alerts for fast-moving and potentially dangerous legislation.

And it isn’t over yet! Help us continue to support the active and independent voice South Dakotans demand in our state capitol.
