Ah, South Dakota, land of Trumpism writ large. We want to build a wall…
New security barriers are in the works for the state’s Capitol building.
The commission that oversees the Capitol complex gave approval Tuesday to the concept.
A wall with a stone or concrete base would be installed around the north side between the semi-circular parking area and the four triangles of lawn [Bob Mercer, “State Capitol Could Get a Security Wall,” Pierre Capital Journal, 2016.11.22].
…and have someone else pay for it:
[Leah] Svendsen said the Bureau of Administration doesn’t have funding yet for the wall and is looking into applying for a federal Homeland Security grant.
If Homeland Security funding isn’t obtained, a wrought iron fence could be installed instead, she said [Mercer, 2016.11.22].
