Caitlyn Jenner is calling on South Dakota Gov. Dennis Daugaard to veto a bill that seeks to prohibit students in public schools from using the bathroom that does not conform to his or her gender at birth.

“Tell @SDGovDaugaard to protect trans kids by vetoing #HB1008,” Jenner tweeted Monday to her more than 3.76 million followers.

Daugaard, a Republican, has not said whether he will sign into law the bill, approved last week by lawmakers. It could also become law without his signature in a procedure known as “pocket pass.”

The bill's sponsor, Republican Senator Brock Greenfield, said that the legislation was needed to protect students.

“We're talking about our youth co-mingling in bathrooms and locker rooms, biological males and biological females, and a lot of my constituents approached me even before the session last year and said that [that] just doesn't jibe with them; that they feel that's inappropriate,” he said.

Daugaard met with three transgender people, including two students, on Tuesday.

“It helped me see things through their eyes a little better and see more of their perspective,” the governor said. “I have my own set of values and in the end I'll make my own decisions.”

Daugaard has until March 1 to act.
