“Some of the worst maintained land in the country is federal land. The 30-30 rule is trying to take more control of land and put it under the federal government’s authority and power. So I’m not in favor of that. Our landowners, many times, are the greatest stewards of the land because they’re the ones who are going to pass it on to their kids and their grandkids.” — Governor Kristi Noem on 30-by-30
