South Dakota Cattlemen’s Association want policies on eminent domain

The South Dakota Cattlemen’s Association has set its sights on eminent domain policies.

As companies work to build or expand pipelines across farm grounds, the group is working to ensure property owners are protected and companies are following the laws of eminent domain.

The group says it is important, especially with a new pipeline slated for Eastern South Dakota. They say they are not opposed to landowners wanting the lines on their properties, but they want to ensure policies are set in place to make sure the process is done correctly.
