Surprise! Kristi Noem No Longer Supports Food Sales Tax Relief

THE FACTS: Gov. Kristi Noem was a major proponent of eliminating the state sales tax on groceries during her 2022 gubernatorial campaign and during the 2023 legislative session.

THE NEWS: But an official in her administration said Noem is not backing a potential 2024 statewide ballot measure that would drop the food tax because it could also eliminate state sales tax revenues on tobacco products.
