(Neb)-San Francisco Bans City Business Travel To South Dakota
San Francisco, Calif. (AP) - San Francisco has banned city employees from traveling to South Dakota following passage and signing earlier this month 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 prohibition is part of an ordinance blocking travel to states that approve legislation that discriminates against LGBT people, similar to a California state law that took effect Jan 1st. State government travel has already been banned to 4 states and South Dakota is expected to be added to the list.
