RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) — A backlog of railcars in the Midwest is one of the issues Sen. John Thune plans to seek input for on Thursday at a town hall in Rapid City.

With the harvest looming, farmers are worried about getting what's expected to be a bumper crop to market.

Thune also plans to discuss the Department of Veterans Affairs, border issues and other topics.

The town hall starts at 4 p.m. Monday at the South Dakota School of Mines and Technology.
