PIERRE — Gov. Dennis Daugaard said Tuesday he wants to provide airplane manufacturers who build aircraft and parts in South Dakota with more protection against product liability lawsuits.
He said there already is a small aircraft industry in South Dakota and the presence of Ellsworth Air Force Base near Rapid City is an opportunity to be a catalyst for more development.
