Full Bill Text

H 3012 would require multiple occupancy bathrooms and changing facilities located on public property to be designated for and only used by a person based on their biological sex.

The bill would prohibit a local government or other political subdivision in the state from enacting local laws, ordinances, orders, or other regulations that require a place of public accommodation or a private club or other establishment, not in fact open to the general public, to allow a person to use a multiple occupancy bathroom or changing facility regardless of the person’s biological sex.

A law or ordinance that requires a person to use such a facility designated for their biological sex would not constitute discrimination.

The bill defines biological sex to mean “the physical condition of being male or female, which is stated on a person’s birth certificate.”
