School Bathroom Bill Passes Committee With Opposition

Sacramento, CA–In a 5-2 vote, California Assembly Bill 1266 passed through the State Senate Education Committee this morning. The bill now heads to the Senate floor.

At the hearing, there was considerable discussion on the ramifications of the bill. Two senators of the total nine on the committee abstained from voting on the controversial bill—giving it a bare majority for passage. 

PJI attorney Matthew McReynolds testified at today’s hearing, raising privacy concerns and suggesting that the legislature should first de-segregate their own bathrooms before forcing it on students.

Legislative staffers told PJI that they received a flood of calls about the bill. PJI has led the opposition to AB 1266 by launching to raise awareness about this bill. 

PJI President Brad Dacus is available to comment on this new development at 916-857-6900.
