After saying she was “excited” to sign HB 1217 days ago, South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem has instead sent the bill back to the legislature with recommendations for changes in “style” and “form.”

The House Bill will ban biological males from playing in female sport teams. It also declares there are only two genders — and it lists “inherent” differences between the two.

“I believe that boys should play boys’ sports, and girls should play girls’ sports. I’m returning House Bill 1217 with the following recommendations as to STYLE and FORM,” Noem tweeted Saturday.

The bill was sent to her desk on March 10 and until yesterday, rumors spread the governor may veto the bill.

In a twitter thread, the governor lists many changes she wants made to the bill. Mainly adding specifics and more detailed rules in the bill.

“Unfortunately, as I have studied this legislation and conferred with legal experts over the past several days, I have become concerned that this bill’s vague and overly broad language could have significant unintended consequences,” Noem tweeted Saturday.

“I support this legislation and hope that House Bill 1217, with the changes I am proposing, becomes law,” she tweeted.

The Daily Caller reported yesterday that Noem was “wavering” in her support. The Twitter thread showed this in Noem’s requests for specifics surrounding performance-enhancing drugs and college athletics.

As recently as March 8 Noem had said she was “excited to sign this bill very soon.”

Whether the legislature will make the changes and Noem will put her signature on paper has yet to be seen.

As of September 12, the state of Texas has raised a little over $55 million in private donations, to secure the southern border and build a wall. “While securing the border is the federal government’s responsibility, Texas will not sit idly by as this crisis grows. Texas is responding with the most robust and comprehensive border plan the nation has ever seen,” Texas Gov. Greg Abbott said in a statement.

“The State of Texas is working collaboratively with communities impacted by the border crisis to arrest and detain individuals coming into Texas illegally,” Abbott’s statement reads. “Our efforts will only be effective if we work together to secure the border, make criminal arrests, protect landowners, rid our communities of dangerous drugs, and provide Texans with the support they need and deserve.”

In addition to finding money for a border wall, Abbott has signed legislation which designated Mexican drug cartels as domestic terrorists, and has called on President Joe Biden to do the same.

“Fentanyl is a clandestine killer, and Texans are falling victim to the Mexican cartels that are producing it,” said Governor Abbott in a statement. “Cartels are terrorists, and it’s time we treated them that way. In fact, more Americans died from fentanyl poisoning in the past year than all terrorist attacks across the globe in the past 100 years. In order to save our country, particularly our next generation, we must do more to get fentanyl off our streets.”

“As of now, Biden has not responded to Abbott’s request to designate Mexican cartels as terrorist organizations” reports Just The News.
