California Assembly Passes Gender-Neutral Restrooms Bill

SACRAMENTO, Calif. May 9, 2016, 9:03 PM ET

California lawmakers advanced a proposal Monday that would require all single-stall public restrooms to be gender neutral.

The vote came hours after North Carolina's governor sued the federal government to defend a law in that state requiring transgender people to use the restroom matching the sex on their birth certificate.

Members of the California Assembly voted 52-18 on an initial ballot in favor of the proposal from Democratic Assemblyman Phil Ting of San Francisco. He said it aims to help transgender people, parents with kids of different genders and adults caring for aging parents.

At least three states have considered proposals in the past two years to open single-occupancy stalls to anyone as state and local governments address gender issues. Ting's office says California's proposal is the most comprehensive taken up so far.

1. one does wonder about the obsession some have about bathrooms and their usage.

I guess CA will not be hiring the privy patrol.
