South Dakota Senate Bill 169, the flooded private lands measure was defeated in the state Senate this week when it was tabled. South Dakota Farm Bureau backed the measure and was disappointed at the action. Farm Bureau Lobbyist Mike Held says they’ll work to try and find a compromise all sides can agree to and try again next session.

Held says his group thought they had the right measure this session after trying last year. He says however others thought differently.

The intention of SB 169 was to provide access and use of public waters on public and private land and still protect private property rights.
