KOTA TV reports the SD School of Mines & Technology was gifted a piece of real estate downtown where the old Imperial Hotel was located. South Dakota legislators must determine if funding the $20 million facility is in the budget. Expansion downtown would help to alleviate some overcrowding as well as eliminate some short-term leases. The new equipment could then be housed in a facility built better to accommodate it.
