PIERRE, S.D. — Gov. Dennis Daugaard enters his final legislative session again constrained by tight state finances, relegating the two-term Republican to a largely caretaker role.

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. — An independent review has concluded that flawed siding panels on the Denny Sanford Premier Center in Sioux Falls are structurally sound.
