Hot Springs VA Relocation At A Standstill

While U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) Secretary Bob McDonald issued a decision to relocate most of the VA services in Hot Springs to Rapid City, a legislative issue is preventing the agency from utilizing funding for the reconfiguration. As reported by KOTA News, VA officials are currently working with the South Dakota delegation to remedy the issue.

Once a solution for the funding concern has been found, it could take as many as three to five years to build a new VA system in Rapid City. However, building expansion projects may cause further delays to the move.
