Panel sends Nevada baby-changing table bill to Assembly

CARSON CITY — An Assembly panel gave unanimous support Tuesday to a bill requiring new public buildings to have baby changing tables in all restrooms — men’s and women’s.

Assembly Bill 241 sponsored by Assembly Speaker Jason Frierson, D-Las Vegas, and others now moves to the full lower house after it was passed by the Assembly Committee on Government Affairs.

The bill was amended to exempt buildings or facilities where people younger than 18 are not allowed, and to delay the effective date to Oct. 1 for local governments to incorporate the bill into building codes or ordinances.
