Important to FMs: AB280 Introduced to Nevada Assembly

A large portion of our mission statement is to educate Facility Managers. I want to keep everyone up to speed on potential Nevada laws that can affect us if they are passed.

Another bill was introduced two weeks ago now in the Nevada Assembly, on 3/15 and then went to committee on 3/16.  It is AB280 and would require any public buildings constructed after October 2021 with a single-stall restroom to make the single-stall restroom as inclusive and accessible as possible for: a parent/guardian with a child; a person with a disability; a person of any gender identity. It also would require the signage/placarding outside the room to say either "All-Gender Bathroom” or “All-Accessible Bathroom”. I am told that there has already been a little leniency noted in introduction that the word “bathroom” could be replaced with “restroom”.

Again, this bill just went to committee, but it may warrant understanding it if the committee work sessions it, committee passes it and it goes to the assembly floor for a vote. If so, it could go to the Senate and become a law we must all comply with.
