SB 46 Would Ban Trans Sports Participation Consistent With Gender Identity The South Dakota Senate passed an anti-transgender sports ban bill, South Dakota Senate Bill 46, becoming the first chamber in the 2022 to advance discriminatory anti-transgender legislation.

This comes after an historically bad 2021 session that saw a record number of anti-transgender bills introduced and passed across the country.

SB 46 passed out of the State Senate Affairs Committee on Friday, Jan. 14 as the legislature moves at breakneck speed in an attempt to rush through this discriminatory bill.
