SINGLE USE BATHROOM BILL ON GOVERNOR’S DESK

AB 1732 (Ting D) regarding single use bathrooms has been sent to the Governor.  We have followed the bill closely and remain neutral on the bill.  The bill requires all single-user toilet facilities in any building to be designated as all-gender toilet facility. The bill authorizes inspectors, building officials, or other local officials responsible for code enforcement to inspect for compliance with these provisions during any inspection.  In plain English, if you have a bathroom that an individual can go into and lock the door, that restroom should not be designated as either an exclusively male or female restroom.  Under the current building codes, it would be deemed as a “unisex” bathroom.
