Noem Defends Decision On Transgender Athletes Bill

(Pierre, SD) — Former pro athletes will be alongside Governor Kristi Noem today when she defends her decision to send back to the legislature a bill that bans transgender athletes from competing in girls and womens sports. The governor has faced criticism since Friday when she announced she would not sign the bill, which she says needs more work before she can sign it. Conservatives have criticized her, saying the bill ensures fairness in women’s sports. Advocates for the LGBTQ community have said that her wish to keep the ban from applying to collegiate sports does not go far enough.
