SACRAMENTO (CBS 8/AP) - A new bill that would require all single-occupancy bathrooms in the state be identified as gender neutral is heading to Gov. Jerry Brown.
If passed, measure AB 1732 would require that single-occupancy restrooms in businesses and public facilities be made accessible to all genders beginning March 1, 2017.
The bill was given final approved by the California Assembly on Monday on a 53-13 vote.
The measure passed one day after a federal judge in Texas temporarily blocked President Barack Obama's order requiring public schools to allow students to use restrooms based on the gender they identify by. AB 1732 builds on a law signed by Gov. Jerry Brown in 2013 that already allows California students to do so.
The bill's author, Assemblyman Phil Ting (D-San Francisco), wrote the bill amid a national debate over transgender rights, introducing it in January. He states that his legislation is also intended to help parents and caregivers.
