Senators Look to Expand Black Hills National Cemetery

The Black Hills National Cemetery Boundary Expansion Act was introduced by Senators Thune and Rounds as a way to gain 200 acres from the Bureau of Land Management.  The Rapid City Journal reports that although there is not an immediate need for the land, it would allow the cemetery to expand when it is necessary.  The bill would allow the administrative jurisdiction of the land to be controlled by the veterans affairs.  Senators Thune and Rounds would like the bill to pass now to solidify the future resting place of veterans.
