Law requires baby changing tables in both men’s and women’s restrooms in federal buildings


(KRON) — Dads will soon have an easier time doing diaper changes in federal buildings.

Last week, President Obama signed into law the Bathrooms Accessible in Every Situation Act, also knows as the BABIES Act.

It requires that both women’s and men’s restrooms in federal buildings have baby changing tables.

The new law had both bipartisan support and some star power behind it.

That includes actor Ashton Kutcher, who lobbied for that kind of legislation.

The bill was introduced by Rep. David Cicilline (D-Rhode Island).

The change will be seen in social security offices, post office buildings, and federal courthouses, among other places.
