(S.D.)- Rushmore Group Wants More Information On Garage

     The group that has raised millions of dollars for Mount Rushmore has gone to federal court in an attempt to obtain information about a parking garage it operates at the monument.


     The Mount Rushmore Society says the Department of Interior and National Park Service are violating the Freedom of Information Act by not releasing a complete report on the parking facility.


     The society has a 20-year contract with the park service to operate the garage. It expires in 2016.


     The complaint says the government only provided a list of repairs to the structure.


     The Rapid City Journal reports that officials with the park service's regional office in Omaha declined to comment on the issue.
