SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (WTVO) — The Illinois House passed a bill this week that requires all single-occupancy public bathrooms in the state be designated as gender neutral.
SB 556 passed both houses Tuesday and is headed to Gov. J.B. Pritzker’s desk for a signature.
If the bill becomes law, “every single-occupancy restroom in a place of public accommodation or public building shall be identified as all-gender and designated for use by no more than one person at a time or for family or assisted use.”
The bill includes all bathrooms that have been built or that will be built in the State of Illinois.
