Regents forward SB55 Task Force Report

The work of a state-appointed task force that studied operations and functions of the public university system over the past year will soon be in the hands of legislators and Governor Kristi Noem.

The South Dakota Board of Regents on Wednesday accepted the Senate Bill 55 Task Force report and directed staff to submit it in final form to the governor and the legislature’s Joint Committee on Appropriations.

Regents Executive Director and CEO Brian Maher said that work is already underway on some of the recommendations in the report, while others will require further analysis or study.  

Further work on task force recommendations will come in a variety of ways, either through Board of Regents’ agenda items, adoption of policy changes by the board, or by legislative action.
