Wednesday, November 14, 2018
Port Yankton supporters will decide by January whether to resurrect the proposed entertainment complex and convention center.

The Pork Yankton effort ran into a roadblock during the 2018 Legislature when the measure died in committee and didn’t reach the floor. However, Port Yankton backers are considering a petition drive to place the constitutional amendment on the 2020 ballot.
