MADISON, S.D. (AP) - The state Board of Regents has approved rules governing the sale of beer and wine at special events hosted at South Dakota’s public universities.

The board took final action on the regulations Thursday.

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.

Mike Rush, the regents’ executive director and CEO, says a university that decides to allow the sales has to create rules for an institutional permit process. The new regulations also require universities to report annually to the regents describing events where alcohol sales were allowed on campus.

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.
