House of Representatives
Session of 2019 - 2020 Regular Session

To: All House members
Subject: Baby Diaper Changing Tables
We have all heard stories of parents and caregivers being forced to change a child’s diaper on the unsanitary floor of a public restroom, simply because a restaurant or grocery store did not provide an adequate table to do so. Placing families in this position is unsafe, inappropriate, and unnecessary.

It is for this reason that I plan to introduce legislation requiring state and municipality-owned buildings, as well as private businesses, to provide baby diaper changing tables in all publicly-accessible restrooms. These tables must be safe, sanitary, and adequately maintained to ensure all parents have peace of mind when out in public with their child.

Please join me in supporting this legislation to make Pennsylvania a more modern and parent-friendly place.

Thank you for your consideration.

Introduced as HB1029
