SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (WIFR) -- A new bill would require single-occupancy restrooms in Illinois to be considered "gender neutral."
SB 556 passed vote from the Senate and House of Representatives on Tuesday. The bill now heads to Gov. J.B. Pritzker's desk for consideration.
If passed, the bill would require “every single-occupancy restroom in a place of public accommodation or public building [to] be identified as all-gender and designated for use by no more than one person at a time or for family or assisted use."
Single-occupancy restrooms would also be required to have signage indicating ‘all-gender’ or ‘gender-neutral.’
California, Vermont and New Mexico currently have similar restroom laws in effect.
