PIERRE, S.D. (KELO) — Proposed restrictions on activities by minors at public universities, allegations of wrong-doing by a grain trader, and requests for millions of dollars in public financing highlight the coming week’s activities in South Dakota state government.

The Board of Regents on Tuesday considers final approval of a policy that would govern minors on university campuses. It comes in the wake of a drag show last fall at South Dakota State University.

Also on Tuesday, the Public Utilities Commission hears final arguments in the request by Banghart Properties for a Class A grain-trading license and sets the schedule for proceeding on the complaint against the Gettysburg-based company for violating the $5 million limit on its Class B license.

The Economic Development Finance Authority on Wednesday considers a request for a livestock nutrient management bond for up to $187 million to Gevo Net-Zero 1, a company that plans to build a processing center for renewable aircraft fuel at Lake Preston.

And the Economic Development Board on Wednesday looks at a SD Works loan request from Engineered Concrete Products of Rapid City for $1,012,500 and a REDI loan request for $1,192,500 from TTL Holdings, which owns Engineered Concrete Products.
