A bill that would ban transgender students from restrooms of the gender they identify with is on its way to the governor's desk in South Dakota.

FOX's Jeff Monosso reports:

The South Dakota state Senate approved the bill yesterday that would make the state the first in the nation to require transgender students to use bathrooms and locker rooms that correspond with their sex at birth.

A measure Republican Gov. Dennis Daugaard says he'll study before making a decision on.

Advocates say the bill is meant to protect the privacy of all students, but opponents say it's discriminatory, though providing a reasonable accommodation for transgender students such as a single-occupancy bathroom is also a part of the bill.
