High school sports livestreaming sent to governor
The South Dakota House of Representative gave final approval Feb. 27 to a measure prohibiting exclusive contracts for school sports coverage. The bill passed 50-20 and is headed to Gov. Dennis Daugaard to sign.
Senate Bill 109 would prohibit exclusive contracts for sports coverage, such as a $10,000 deal between the Pierre School District and a local radio station.
Supporters say the plan would not prevent school districts from charging reasonable fees for that access, as long as each outlet pays the same price.
