South Dakota Passes Pipeline Propaganda Bill, Gov. Noem Expected to Sign

Shortly before voting, a committee “rebranded” the bill using archaic marketing tactics, naming it the “Landowner Bill of Rights”.

The bills pave the way for Summit Carbon Solutions, an Iowa-based company seeking to construct roughly 500 miles of carbon capture pipeline through 18 counties in eastern South Dakota, to move ahead with their project.

The main issue with the language “Landowner Bill of Rights” and narrative it is setting up is that it opens a path for landowners to be considered activists of domestic terrorists to the state.

Currently there are landowners being denied insurance quotes and coverage due to the potential of a carbon pipeline being put in their property. In North of Dakota, landowners who are asking for more transparency and civility, are already being labeled “activists” by the state.
