South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem has signed a bill into law to protect South Dakota farmers from nuisance claims.

House Bill 1090 says a nuisance action may not be filed against an ag operation unless the plaintiff is the owner or the lessee of the property affected within one mile of the problem.

At a signing ceremony on Wednesday, Noem said nusiance complaints and lawsuits about agriculture production facilities are typically filed by people who are not local to the issue.
