S.D. counties on hook for Keyston By Bart Pfankuch S.D. News Watch A group of mostly rural South Dakota counties could be on the hook for millions of dollars in costs related to any protests that arise over con- struction of the Keystone XL Pipeline in the state. The outlay would be required be- fore the state kicks in any disaster money to pay for the response to protests that some expect will erupt during construction of the controver- sial oil pipeline. "It will bankrupt some counties if it happens," said Kathy Glines, emer- gency management officer in Hard- ing County, where the Canadian-owned pipeline will enter South Dakota. "There's a lot of coun- ties that don't have this kind of money sitting around, especially if it (a protest) is a long-term issue." The concerns in the nine West River counties on the pipeline path have coalesced around two factors: a 1969 South Dakota law requiring counties to spend significant local taxpayer money to handle an emer- gency before state funding kicks in; and the fear that protests over Key- stone XL could mirror the massive 7- month, sometimes violent demonstration against the Dakota Access Pipeline in North Dakota in 2016-17. The sprawling protest near Can- non Ball, N.D cost an estimated $38 million to control, and who pays those costs remains in dispute. The county where much of the protest took place spent more than $4 mil- lion on response. The laws in South Dakota Chap- ter 34 require that in order to qualify for state financial assistance as part of an official disaster declaration by thegovernor that "minimum local ef- fort" must first be met. The law de- fines that spending as equal to 2 mills, or $2 per $1,000 of the full as- sessed value of each county during the 12-month period prior to the re- quest for a disaster declaration. Furthermore, the law requires the state to fund only up to 60 percent of t.he costs after the local spending threshold has been passed. The county spending requirement will not prevent the state from re- sponding in an emergency or from declaring a disaster, said Kristi Tar- man, division director within the state Department of Public Safety and former state emergency manage- ment director. Turman said public safety is the top priority in any disaster, including a major pipeline protest. How that re- sponse gets paid for is dictated by state law and is determined once the emergency is over.

"It is a huge problem; we're very concerned about potential protests and the costs that would be incurred," Commission Chair Galen Niederw- erder saidduring a recent meeting in Sturgis. "Everything else, the logis- tics of getting this pipeline through, the roads, the pipeline, the right of way this is an issue that concerns the county more than anything else." In Pennington County, which will be home to only a short segment of the pipeline near the Cheyenne River, the local effort requirement would amount to about $17 million, said Auditor-elect Cindy Mohler. Costs to manage a major protest, even a peaceful gathering, including crowd control, traffic and public safety needs likely will be high. Those costs can rise quickly and in- volve numerous agencies and spend- ing categories. Lessons learned According to the North Dakota Office of Adjutant General, manag- ing the 2016-17 Dakota Access protest cost $37.4 million, including about $16 million for response by out-of-state agencies and $10.4 mil- lion for North Dakota National Guard assistance. An estimated 1,400 law enforcement officers and 300 other personnel from 11 states and 23 North Dakota agencies responded to the protest that is believed to be the largest and longest-duration protest in American history. More than 800 state criminal cases were filed as a re- sult of protest activities. North Dakota filed a lawsuit against the federal government in July seeking reimbursement of the full costs of containment, arguing that the U.S. Army Corps of Engi- neers failed to adequately enforce trespass laws, enabling the protest to extend for months. The U.S. Depart- ment of Justice has reimbursed North Dakota for $10 million of protests costs and the Dakota Access Pipeline, LLC has donated $15 mil- lion to the state to offset response costs. The local government at the cen- ter of the protest, Morton County, spent about $4.4 million on person- nel, equipment, staff housing, and food and other costs related to the protests, Emergency Manager Tom Doering said. Doering said North Dakota does not have a spending threshold that counties must meet before getting state financial support, but there is a damage value that must be met to trigger a state declaration. He said Morton County declared a local dis- aster the day after the protest began and the governor declared a statewide disaster the next day that provided funding and personnel al- most immediately. Doering urged South Dakota offi- Keystone (Continued on Page 3) ABBREVIATED NOTW.AE INq'E TO AME ADMINISTRATIVE RUCES Ma~ c~f~y Irmn.L~an North Dakota Aerona.tk Corn m ission Will hold a public h~ari~g ~o Adrrin.
