South Dakota is receiving more than $8 million from a California lawsuit against Volkswagen. The South Dakota Department of Environment and Natural Resources is handling disbursements of the state's share of the settlement. Some of the money will land in Rapid City. In response, the Rapid City Standing Committee on Sustainability is now open to public comments on how it should be spent. SDPB's Victoria Wicks learned more at a public presentation held this weekend.
