Adoptions-Religious Exemptions-San Francisco
San Francisco prohibits travel to South Dakota for city employees
The Associated Press - March 20, 2017

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. - San Francisco has banned city employees from traveling to South Dakota following passage of a bill protecting religious or faith-based adoption agencies that won't place children with unmarried or same-sex couples.

A spokesman for the San Francisco city administrator says employees will be barred from traveling on state or city-subsidized business to South Dakota or from contracting with South Dakota businesses.

The Argus Leader reports the prohibition is part of an ordinance blocking travel to states that approve legislation that discriminates against LGBT people.

And the state of California could be considering a similar move.

Earlier this month, Republican Gov. Dennis Daugaard signed a bill to give legal protections to faith-based organizations that refuse based on their religious beliefs to place children in certain households.
