According to a report from the Argus Leader, the state’s Senate passed Gov. Kristi Noem’s transphobic bill on 19 January. After nearly an hour of deliberation, officials voted in favour of SB 46 by a 26-7 vote – with two senators excused.

The anti-LGBTQ+ decision makes the South Dakota Senate the first US chamber to pass an anti-trans law in 2022. Under the legislation, trans girls and women would be effectively banned from playing sports at their local schools.

The Senate also passed an amendment that grants students the right to sue a school, activities association or organisation for violating the horrific law.
