(S.D.)-Governor Signs Bill For State Park Improvements
PIERRE, S.D. (AP) - Gov. Dennis Daugaard has signed a bill that provides $4 million to improve three parts of South Dakota's state park system.
The bill, proposed by the governor, sets aside $2 million for construction at the new state park being established at the Blood Run Nature Area in southeastern South Dakota.
Another $1.5 million will be used for improvements at the Custer State Park visitor's center.
And $500,000 will be used to extend the George S. Mickelson hiking and biking trail in the Black Hills to Mount Rushmore National Memorial.
The governor signed the parks funding bill Thursday as he was finishing work on bills passed by this year's Legislature.
