SB 91 would require each multiple-occupancy restroom, shower, and changing facility of a political subdivision, including a public school district, or an open-enrollment charter school to be designated for and used only by persons of the same sex as stated on a person ’s birth certificate.

Local Control

The bill would prohibit a political subdivision, including a public school district, or an open-enrollment charter school from adopting or enforcing an order, ordinance, policy, or other measure to protect a class of persons from discrimination to the extent that such policy regulates:

  • access to multi-occupancy restrooms, showers, or changing facilities; or
  • participation in athletic activities.

The bill provides that this provision may be enforced only through an action instituted by the attorney general for mandamus or injunctive relief.
