The Transgender Protection Act

Section 1: Designation of Gender Neutral Bathrooms
 
1. All government buildings shall have at least one bathroom designated as "gender-neutral".

2. This act shall be construed to lead to the construction of new bathrooms for the purpose of ensuring the existence of a gender-neutral bathroom.

Sponsor: PJ

Alright, in the post he said he just copied it from the Midwest. I am not particullarly in favour of doing so, so I'll provide an amendment; that there is at least some Pacific in it Smiley

Section 2: Transgender Protection

1. No person openly appearing as Transgender shall not be denied any services non-Transgender persons would have recieved.

2. Transgender citizens shall have security from persecution or worse treatment.


That would be the amendment.

Are we trying economic stimulus in the form of a boom in bathroom construction? Tongue

Lol. Maybe it was PJ's intent Tongue

God, that bill is so unnecessary, I don't know if I'm allowed, but I'd close it right away.

It'd be a lot easier to simply make existing bathrooms gender neutral than what's being suggested in the original bill, I think, but you're right that this isn't the most pressing issue. I'd support tabling.

Ok. I'll assume I'm allowed to do so, and table that bill for an indefinite amount of time.

I also support tabling.

I think the way it's done is, someone makes a motion to table. Cranberry, that can be you. Simfan or Devin would second. If I can follow, I'll second it now.

This might be in the RARCO (Random Acronym Related to Council Order), which I want to dig up and take a look at anyway, if it still even applies since we passed a new constitution. The 4th Const. may have voided it, I'll have to check. If it still applies, I want to amend it.
