Thune sneaks in bill to swap Spearfish Canyon for grassland...

Incase some of you do not yet know, Thune, Daugaard, Rounds and Noem are up to no good once again. Even the Forest Service is against this bill.

"Spearfish Canyon and Bismarck Lake Land Exchange Act

This bill directs the Department of Agriculture (USDA), if South Dakota conveys to it four parcels of specified nonfederal lands, comprising 1,954 acres, to convey to South Dakota in exchange 1,468 acres known as the "Spearfish Canyon Area" and 524 acres known as the "Bismarck Lake Area" in the Black Hills National Forest in South Dakota.

The values of the federal and nonfederal lands to be exchanged shall be equal.

USDA shall complete any environmental analyses required under the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 regarding the land exchange carried out under this bill.

The nonfederal lands acquired by USDA shall be added to and administered as part of the forest.

The federal lands acquired by South Dakota shall be managed by it for public recreation uses and the conservation of natural resources."
