House Bill 1153 has been introduced in the South Dakota Legislature. The bill would bring state law in alignment with federal law, specifically section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act. Section 106 requires consultation with tribes and Tribal Historic Preservation Officers as part of the review process when mining is proposed in an area. Including tribes and THPOs will help protect cultural and environmental resources when mining is proposed.
