According to this news article: http://www.ksfy.com/news/local/63480837.html, South Dakota state Rep. Eldon Nygaard, is planning to sponsor a bill favoring access (other than by court-order-only) to adoptees to their birth records.
To my dismay, the article also states that another state Rep. Joni Cutler of Sioux Falls, is fine with the laws in their current state, despite the fact that she is an adoptee herself.
PLEASE HELP THESE ADOPTEES AND TRIAD MEMBERS BE HEARD!!

Contact Eldon Nygaard and give him some encouragement and support! Let him know that nothing short of complete and open access is acceptable.
