SIOUX FALLS, S.D. -- A bill that sponsors say would clear up the confusion over special alcoholic beverages licenses is headed to the South Dakota House after being approved unanimously in committee.

The chief sponsor, Rep. Charles Turbiville, says there currently are 11 statutes dealing with temporary or special licenses for things such as a street dance, community fundraiser or rodeo.

A bill adopted today by the House Commerce Committee would consolidate them under one statute for what are considered civic, charitable, educational, fraternal or veterans groups.

The licenses would be good for 15 days or less.

The bill is a product of a legislative study committee that met over the summer.
