AB 1732: The Equal Restroom Access Act
April 24, 2016 at 3:07 pm

In This Section


Restricting access to single-occupancy restrooms by gender creates problems of safety, fairness, and convenience. This bill enacts the most progressive statewide restroom access policy in the nation, requiring all single-occupancy restrooms in businesses, government buildings and places of public accommodation to be available to everyone. Compliance with the bill is a matter of changing a sign on a restroom door.   The bill is authored by Assemblymember Phil Ting (D-San Francisco) and supported by the Transgender Law Center, California NOW and the Golden Gate Restaurant Association.

Status: Signed by Gov. Jerry Brown, Sept. 29, 2016

Author: Assemblymember Phil Ting (D-San Francisco)
