HB 1008 seeks to ban transgender students from using school restrooms and locker rooms that correspond with their gender identity. The measure was passed by the state senate Tuesday after being passed by the state house last week.

By a 15–20 vote, the South Dakota state senate passed a bill on Tuesday to ban transgender students from using school restrooms that correspond with their gender identity.

After passing the state house earlier this month, House Bill 1008 is expected to head to Gov. Dennis Daugaard in the coming days.

Provided that he signs it, South Dakota would be the first state in the country to pass such a law — likely teeing up a clash with the federal government, which has taken the position that such policies constitute illegal discrimination. (Full Story at Buzzfeed)
