South Dakota Farmers Union President wants to see reform on eminent domain laws

SIOUX FALLS, S.D.(KELO)- The South Dakota Public Utilities Commission will find itself in the middle of the debate over Carbon Capture pipelines this week.

It will begin hearings on the proposed Navigator pipeline…one of two planned to go through the state.

South Dakota Farmer’s Union president Doug Sombke wants reform of the state’s eminent domain laws before the hearings begin…but that doesn’t appear likely.

PUC hearings on the proposed Summit Carbon Solutions pipeline are set for September.
