SD legislature approves carbon pipeline bills


The South Dakota Legislature has passed three bills outlining landowner protections and requiring additional payments from companies if they want to build a carbon pipeline in the state.

After a conference committee meeting on Wednesday, Senate Bill 201 now requires the carbon pipelines pay an additional fee of $1 per foot of pipe where the line runs with county government and landowners sharing the benefits.

House Bill 1185 adds more landowner protections and House Bill 1186 defines the requirements for granting a carbon pipeline easement.
