Bill to end university collective bargaining fails in Senate

PIERRE, S.D. (AP) A bill that would have ended collective bargaining at South Dakota's public universities has failed in the state Senate.

The chamber voted 18-16 Tuesday against the plan. It narrowly passed through the House and had Gov. Dennis Daugaard's support.

House Speaker Mark Mickelson, the bill's sponsor, has said that it would save money and make the institutions more efficient.

But critics argued the measure would have made it harder for universities to recruit and keep faculty.

1. Oh it would save money all right.

The 16 who voted for it should all rake a 50% salary cut for the nect 20 years.
