What does state Sen. Ricardo Lara have his eye on as the Legislature heads into its last month of session? “Potty parity,” for one.
The Bell Gardens Democrat is promoting a bill that would require businesses installing diaper changing stations to make them accessible to both men and women. He will be joined by concerned fathers, 11:30 a.m. at the Aquarium of the Pacific in Long Beach, to make the case.
Lara’s is not the only piece of legislation this year dealing with diaper changing stations. Another from Sen. Lois Wolk, D-Davis, would require the adoption of state building standards for the installation of stations in public restrooms.
