District 4 State Representative Fred Deutsch of Florence joins Dakota Midday for a conversation about House Bill 1008, a bill to "restrict access to certain restrooms and locker rooms in public schools."

Rep. Deutsch discusses the timing of HB1008, how the state can support local districts in protecting the "bodily privacy of young people," and what he says the possible impact of the bill is on transgender and cisgender students.
