SPRINGFIELD – Legislation sponsored by State Representative Delia Ramirez and State Senator Ram Villivalam that would increase the availability of baby changing facilities in public buildings was signed into law last week.

 “Our state is sending a message that we welcome, support, and celebrate all parents, guardians, and caretakers,” Villivalam (D-Skokie) said. “This legislation removes an unnecessary barrier to child care by ensuring that all those who are raising children, regardless of gender identity, have access to a baby changing station in public places.”

HB 3711 would ensure that all public restrooms in new state buildings that are readily accessible to the public have baby changing stations that are physically safe, sanitary, and usable. In addition, signage outside the entrance to restrooms where the baby changing station is located would be required.

This legislation  will take effect immediately.
