Ed Fischbach react to the likelihood of no special session

ABERDEEN, S.D.(HubCityRadio)- Ed Fischbach, farmer from Mellette, South Dakota in Spink County visited the KSDN studios to provided an update on the issue of the CO2 pipeline & Summit Carbon Solutions looking to use eminent domain to obtain some of those properties.

On Tuesday, the Spink County Commission announced they are in the process of doing an ordinance to address the issues of setbacks.  Fischbach discuss what they would be.

Fischbach provide an update on what Summit reported in to the commission.

As mentioned, Mellette is in Spink County which their representation comes from Beadle County & especially the Huron area.  Fischbach updated what that county is doing addressing the pipeline.

Last week was the Property Rights rally in Pierre trying to get Governor Kristi Noem to call for a special session.  Noem told DakotaNewsNow that she’s not planning to do that as that would be fruitless. Fischbach responded to that.

Fischbach believes even if she doesn’t call for a session that there are other things she can do to support landowners.

Fischbach discuss the next steps that landowners are going to do as petition hearings are about to be heard by the South Dakota Public Utilities Commission.

Summit’s hearing with the SD PUC is September 11th.
