South Dakota's Senate Bill 83 is out of commission, following a February 4, 2016, hearing in the Senate Education Committee. The committee voted 4-3 to defer further consideration of the bill to the forty-first legislative day, and since the legislative session in South Dakota is thirty-eight days long in 2016, the bill is effectively dead.
South Dakota's Senate Bill 83 — which would, if enacted, allow teachers to teach "the strengths and weaknesses of scientific information" presented in courses aligned with the state education standards — received coverage from the Sioux Falls Argus Leader (January 31, 2016).
