Chapter 112

(House Bill 1129)

An Act to prohibit forms of discrimination in access to organ transplantation.

Be it enacted by the Legislature of the State of South Dakota:

Section 1. That chapter 34-26 be amended with a NEW SECTION:

No person may discriminate against an individual at any point in the organ transplant process, solely on the basis of an individual’s mental or physical disability, unless the disability has been determined to be medically significant to the provision of an anatomical gift.

A violation of this statute is an unfair or discriminatory practice under chapter 20-13.
