SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - Transgender Olympic gold medalist Caitlyn Jenner has called on South Dakota Gov. Dennis Daugaard to veto a bill that would require transgender schoolchildren to use bathrooms and locker rooms that correspond with their sex at birth.

Jenner urged her Twitter followers on Monday to tell Daugaard to reject the measure and to not make South Dakota the first state to adopt such a law. She also tweeted a link to an American Civil Liberties Union page opposing the bill.

The measure would require schools to make a "reasonable accommodation" for transgender children, such as a single-occupancy bathroom.

Daugaard plans to discuss the bill later Tuesday with a group of transgender people.
