Congressional legislation has been introduced by South Dakota’s senators aimed at facilitating the transfer of land from the Bureau of Land Management.  The BLM acreage would be transferred to the Black Hills National Cemetery…located just outside Sturgis.

Senators Mike Rounds and John Thune brought the Black Hills National Cemetery Boundary Expansion Act to the Senate floor. Its goal is to permanently transfer 200 acres of federal land to the 100 acres that currently make up the Black Hills National Cemetery.
