PIERRE, S.D. (KELO) — The panel that manages the Sanford Underground Research Facility, the commission that regulates grain traders in South Dakota and the board that licenses medical doctors in the state all have important meetings in the coming week.
The Science and Technology Authority gathers to accept $13 million that the Legislature appropriated for further underground work. The state Public Utilities Commission considers whether to grant a Class B grain-trader license to Banghart Properties. And the state Board of Medical and Osteopathic Examiners meets with South Dakota’s new secretary of health, Melissa Magstadt.
The Indigent Legal Services Task Force sends teams to Vermillion and Huron to hear from the public about ideas for improving or expanding services to indigent defendants. And the Legislature’s committee working on healthcare funding recommendations meets again.
