PIERRE, S.D. (AP) - A South Dakota legislative panel has endorsed updating the Legislature’s anti-harassment rules to include social media.

House Speaker Mark Mickelson, the sponsor, says it’s a clarification of what may constitute harassing or offensive behavior in the Legislature’s code of conduct.
