  • Lawmakers oppose easement at Bear Butte

    By Chet Brokaw
    Pierre, South Dakota (AP)

    Some South Dakota lawmakers made it clear during late September that they oppose any state involvement in a proposed easement that would protect the west side of Bear Butte from development.

    Rep. Thomas Brunner, R-Nisland, had suggested a resolution that sought to put a legislative study committee on record as opposing the Game, Fish and Parks Department’s involvement in any easement at Bear Butte, no matter what source of money is used.
