South Dakota lawmakers say the association that governs high school sports and other activities should be more open.
Members of the Legislature's Joint Appropriations Committee say the South Dakota High School Activities Association should comply with state laws on open meetings and public documents, even though it's technically not a government agency. They say the association uses taxpayer dollars and its staff is covered by the state's public pension plan.
An association lawyer told the legislative committee Tuesday that the organization seeks to comply with open meetings and public records laws.
High School Activities Association executive director Wayne Carney says the organization's audits, meeting agendas and minutes are posted on its website. He says the association is working to get its meetings streamed live on the Internet.
