SD House rejects Noem's veto of trans athlete bill

Now the bill heads back to Noem’s desk, where she can either choose to sign it, or it will go back to the legislature as a vetoed bill, which would require a two-thirds majority of lawmakers to override, according to the Argus Leader.

The governor is expected to call a special session to consider a new bill that would include the changes she has proposed, according to the paper.

After the bill passed the state Senate last month in a 20-15 vote, Noem had indicated she would sign the bill into law, before quickly changing her mind and frustrating her fellow Republicans.
