The executive director of the South Dakota Lottery has updated an oversight commission on the defeat of two bills championed by the group.
Norman Lingle is the executive director of the state's lottery. Lingle on Monday told the Lottery Commission that although the bills didn't earn the legislature's approval, lawmakers did reappoint three of the commission's members.
One of the defeated bills would have allowed more video lottery terminals in licensed establishments. Another one would have increased the bet limit on video lottery games.
Amendments to legislation to give more authority to the Lottery Commission were resisted by members of the state's House during the legislature's regular session that ended earlier this month.
A proposed amendment, for example, suggested allowing the commission to set bet limits.
