Moving South Dakota Forward, the group behind Initiated Measure 15, released its first ad today.
K-12 education will get only half the revenue from the 1-cent sales tax increase if it passes, but the other beneficiary, Medicaid providers, did not get a mention in the ad.
The first one to speak in the ad is Shannon Graber, who leads a parent group in support of the Spanish immersion program at Rosa Parks Elementary.
Every parent knows that education is the key to success for children.
But last year the state cut tens of millions of dollars from K-12 education.
Those cuts are hurting our kids. Many schools were forced to increase class sizes, eliminate educators and cut student activities.
But Measure 15’ll fix this. It’ll increase the state’s sales tax by just one penny.
And restore K-12 education funding. Please join parents across South Dakota and vote yes on Measure 15.
