MADISON, S.D. (AP) - The state Board of Regents is set to give final consideration to rules governing the sale of beer and wine at special events hosted at South Dakota’s public universities.

The board is scheduled to take up the policy Thursday. Members gave preliminary approval to the regulations at a past meeting.

The policy allows, but doesn’t require potential sales. It also specifies that beer and wine access must be controlled and restricts the beverage sales to premium seating at student athletic events.

Past state law didn’t ban serving alcohol, but on-campus sales were prohibited until a measure allowing them was approved in the 2016 legislative session.
