A legal challenge could scuttle a ballot measure that would cap how much state agencies could pay for prescription drugs even if backers gather enough support to put it on the 2018 ballot. Industry groups have appealed to the South Dakota Supreme Court after a judge rejected their challenge to the attorney general’s explanation. Initiative supporter Rick Weiland says it’s a move to derail a measure that would save taxpayer dollars. (AP Photo/James Nord, File)
