Ducey OKs Law On Changing Stations For Public Restrooms

Arizona Governor Doug Ducey has signed legislation requiring new or renovated government restrooms to have adult-accessible changing tables.

The legislation is intended to allow caregivers of adults with disabilities a dignified way to change clients’ disposable underwear. It originally applied to all new or renovated restrooms, whether in publicly or privately owned buildings. But the provision making it apply to privately-owned buildings was stripped out.

Ducey signed the measure Tuesday. It is expected to cost between $3,600 and $10,000 for each newly built or renovated restroom to comply with the new law.
