Kristi Noem will keep pushing for July 4 fireworks at Mount Rushmore despite federal agency denial

South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem (R) will continue her efforts to celebrate Independence Day with fireworks at Mount Rushmore despite the Biden administration's refusal to grant her request.

Why it matters: Noem's push to ensure the fireworks comes amid a number of concerns about coronavirus spread, wildfires and tribal sovereignty the monument is carved into land sacred to the Lakota Sioux.

What they're saying: Noem will do "everything in her ability" to move forward with her plan, the governor's Communications Director Ian Fury said in a statement to Axios.

Noem's office referenced President Biden's speech last week, in which he said there is a "good chance" Americans will be able to get together to celebrate Independence Day.

"The best place in America to hold such a special celebration would be Mount Rushmore, fireworks included," Fury said.

2. The new Interior Secretary might have some choice words for her.

And I hope a bunch of LEOs to keep her from doing it anyway. Fuck her.
