Governor Noem To Testify On Capitol Hill

(Pierre, SD) — Governor Kristi Noem will be in Washington, D.C., next Thursday to testify before the US House of Representatives Committee on Natural Resources. Noem is arguing in favor of HR 33-97, which would require the Bureau of Land Management to abandon a proposed rule on “conservation and landscape health.” The proposed rule in question would elevate conservation practices as a “use” within the Federal Land Policy and Management Act without Congressional authority. It would dramatically change the way multiple use and sustained yield mandates are carried out. Noem said, “Washington bureaucrats don’t know how to manage land better than the South Dakotans who have been stewarding it for centuries. But Joe Biden’s Administration is pursuing a regulatory land grab.”
