South Dakota lawmakers to debate tuition, beer and pipelines

PIERRE, S.D. (AP) South Dakota lawmakers this week plan to take up bills on university tuition, craft brewing laws and oil pipelines.

The House Education Committee on Monday will debate a bill to give the Legislature control over tuition increases at public universities.

Gov. Dennis Daugaard's push to overhaul craft brewing laws is headed Tuesday to the Senate Commerce and Energy Committee.

A bill raising the legal age to buy tobacco from 18 to 21 is to go before the House Health and Human Services Committee on Tuesday.

Bills to stop new oil pipeline construction in South Dakota and end mining in the Black Hills without the consent of each tribe in the state were scheduled for discussion Monday in the House Commerce and Energy Committee.
