No conflict found in Yankton hog farm votes

Local News

A concluded investigation finds no conflict in votes of Yankton hog farms.

Hog farm opponents had suggested the Yankton County Commissioners violated South Dakota’s conflict of interest law when they approved several hog operations last year, but the South Dakota attorney general’s office says it did not find any cause for concern.

The attorney general’s probe found none of the commissioners had a financial interest nor benefited from their votes to okay hog confinement permits.
