South Dakota -> Uncertainty Over Governor Signing Religious Adoption Agency Bill Into Law

According to this article, South Dakota’s Republican Governor Dennis Daugaard is not a lock on signing South Dakota’s religious adoption agency bill into law.  This bill would allow adoption agencies to discriminate against families based on the agency’s religious beliefs.

The uncertainty over Governor Dauggard stems from the Governor not seeking reelection along with his past history of refusing to sign into law bills advanced by the conservative party regarding transgender restrooms and expansion of gun rights.

So far, three states – Michigan, North Dakota, and Virginia – have laws establishing “religious freedoms” for adoption agencies.
