The state's public universities and schools are asking the South Dakota Board of Regents for around $90 million to complete projects they say are high priority. The South Dakota School of Mines and Technology is requesting money from the state legislature for a Mineral Industries Building that would become "the hub of regional industries, academic and governmental collaboration related to mineral industries."

School of Mines President Jim Rankin and Provost Lance Roberts discuss the proposal.
