PIERRE, S.D. (AP) - The South Dakota Board of Regents is discussing Gov. Dennis Daugaard’s budget plan for the upcoming budget year.

The board is set to hold a special meeting about the spending proposal and other legislative matters on Tuesday.

Much of the roughly $60 million in one-time spending included in the governor’s budget would go to paying off debt to help the state’s public universities and technical schools freeze tuition for the next school year.

Mike Rush is executive director and CEO of the state Board of Regents. He has said the freeze would reduce the amount students have to borrow or pay out of pocket for school.
