South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem is proposing to eliminate the state sales tax on groceries.

Noem says individuals and families are struggling and she blames the current economic conditions on President Joe Biden, his people and his policies.

Noem says cutting the sales tax on groceries is one way to help “protect our people from a disastrous White House.”

If legislation eliminating the sales tax on groceries is passed by the state legislature, Noem says it would be “the largest tax cut in South Dakota history.”

Noem says elimination of the grocery sales tax would reduce the tax burden on South Dakotans by $100 million.
