New York Bill Regarding Single-Sex Multiple Use Bathroom and Changing Facilities (A 5422)
This law was last updated on Mar 31, 2017
A 5422 would require every multiple occupancy bathroom or changing facility that is designated for student use to be designated for and used only by students based on their biological sex.
The bill would require that multiple-occupancy bathrooms or changing facilities in New York’s public schools, public colleges and universities, and state agency buildings are used only by persons based on their biological sex.
The bill defines “biological sex” to mean the physical condition of being male or female, which is stated on a person’s birth certificate.
Similar to A 10127, which failed to pass in 2016.
