State Representative Rick Becker wants to block Summit Carbon Solutions from using eminent domain to complete CO2 pipeline project

(Pierre, SD) -- A South Dakota House committee is advancing a bill that would prevent owners of a proposed carbon dioxide pipeline from using eminent domain to annex land.
The bill was approved by the House State Affairs Committee and says that the CO2 pipeline is not a common carrier of a commodity.
The distinction would mean Summit Carbon Solutions wouldn't be able to use eminent domain to obtain easements.
The bill will now move to the full House.
