"As your SDSCA Government Relations Chair it is my honor to keep you up to date on the Legislative happenings in Pierre. I have attached the report from our Legislative monitor from last week’s session. It gives an overview of bills to watch for as the 2019 Legislative session progresses. Keep in mind things move fast and bills change quite rapidly during session so I will try to keep you as informed as possible. With that being said, I would also like to note Senate Bill 49 was introduced yesterday that would repeal the SD HS Activities Association’s transgender sports policy that was adopted in 2015. If you would like more information on SB 49 (or any of the bills) please go to the SD Legislative Research Council web-site."
