South Dakota Gov. Dennis Daugaard has signed 25 bills into law including several measures for the state's Board of Regents.
One provision authorizes construction of a $60 million stadium at South Dakota State University. It will be paid for with private donations and the stadium's revenue.
Another gives $750,000 for the construction of a greenhouse at Northern State University.
Two other measures signed by the governor grant funding to the state's Board of Regents to purchase properties for SDSU in Brookings County totaling more than $2 million, while another will fund the demolition of two structures on the school's campus.
The governor also signed a new law to create an electronic database of the sale of cold medicines to help law enforcement target the methamphetamine production.
