South Dakota State Senators voted down legislation dealing with public use of water on private lands. Debate on Senate Bill 169 was to continue yesterday in the full Senate, after a rule invoked last Wednesday deferred it. Senator Tim Rave of Baltic was the only member to speak on the bill before it was tabled. He says the meandering water issue will continue to be an ongoing discussion…

 

Rave says legislators haven’t found a full resolution to the problem just yet. Prime sponsor of the bill, Senator Corey Brown of Gettysburg, moved to table the bill. Senators approved the motion 31-3, effectively killing the measure.
