Alabama Republican lawmakers offered a new bill which would force public institutions of the state to hire police officers the duty of which would be guarding the bathrooms. Alabama Senator Phil Williams wasted no time after the new legislative session began this week, immediately introducing so-called bill SB1. The law states that “bathroom, or changing facilities that are designed to be used by multiple persons” must either be exclusively for “persons of the same gender”, or open to people “irrespective of their gender” with physical security present. It requires: “Bathroom, or changing facilities that are designed to be used by multiple persons at once, irrespective of their gender, that are staffed by an attendant stationed at the door of each rest room to monitor the appropriate use of the rest room and answer any questions or concerns posed by users.” It adds: “Enforcement of this act shall be authorized by any state or local law enforcement agency having jurisdiction over the person or entity providing rest rooms, bathrooms, or changing facilities to the public.” If these conditions are not fulfilled, the institution is fined up about $3000
