With multimillion-dollar event venues set to open in South Dakota's largest city, the Sioux Falls City Council has approved a ban on ticket scalping. Council members voted 6-0 to make it illegal to resell event tickets for more than face value within a half mile of the event venue. People who violate the ban could face a fine of up to $500 and a 30-day jail sentence. The move will enable the Sioux Falls Sports Authority to make bids on hosting NCAA athletic events such as postseason tournaments, authority Executive Director Wes Hall said.
