Legislators At Disagreement On CO2 Pipeline Special Session

(Pierre, SD) — Legislators are at odds about holding a special session on the CO2 pipeline jobs set to go through the state. Some want to look deeper into House Bill 11-33 that would add more restrictions to the pipeline businesses. Senator Bryan Breitling says he supports the push for a special session after he sponsored legislation that tried to keep CO2 pipelines out of South Dakota. Governor Kristi Noem has said she doesn’t plan to call lawmakers back to the Capitol for a special session. She was an investor in one of the ethanol plants that would be served, according to a financial disclosure form. Representative Hugh Bartels, the House speaker, says a special session wouldn’t be productive.
