South Dakota Governor on Decision of Mount Rushmore Fireworks

PIERRE, SD (STL.News) Governor  Kristi Noem issued the following statement in response to the District Court decision on her lawsuit against the Biden Administration over their cancellation of the Mount Rushmore Fireworks Celebration:

“The Biden Administration cancelled South Dakota’s Mount Rushmore Fireworks Celebration on completely arbitrary grounds.  I am disappointed that the court gave cover to this unlawful action with today’s decision.  But rest assured, this fight is not over.  My legal team will appeal so that we can return the Fireworks Celebration to Mount Rushmore and celebrate our nation’s birthday at America’s Shrine to Democracy for next year and in the future.”
