KELOLAND Capitol Bureau Reporter Bob Mercer in Pierre assembled this information Friday, October 20. State law requires state government boards and commissions to post public-meeting notices 72 hours in advance, not counting Saturdays, Sundays and official state holidays. The Legislature isn’t subject to that public-notice law.
