Single-Occupancy Restrooms May Become Gender-Neutral in California

In San Francisco, Assemblymember Phil Ting announced a new bill that would call for single-occupancy restrooms in California businesses, government buildings, and public spaces to be identified as “all gender.” Assembly Bill 1732, if passed, would be the most progressive restroom access law adopted by a state in the nation. The bill hopes to increase the safety and security of transgender people, as well as benefiting families with children, and those with caretakers.
