Hot Springs VA Relocation At A Standstill

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.
