Doherty: It’s Crazy to Require Feminine Hygiene Products in Boys’ Restrooms in New Jersey Schools

Calls on Democrats to change legislation approved by Senate Education Committee today

Senator Michael Doherty has called for amendments to clarify that legislation approved by the Senate Education Committee today would not require feminine hygiene products to be made available in boys’ bathrooms in New Jersey schools.

“It’s crazy that no one can tell us in committee today if the bill only applies to girls’ bathrooms,” Doherty (R-23) said. “It would be completely and utterly ridiculous to force schools in New Jersey to make tampons and sanitary napkins available in the boys’ bathroom. It would be a huge waste of money and is almost certain to lead to vandalism which could be quite expensive to repair. Sponsors should agree to reasonable amendments to clarify that the legislation only applies to girls’ rooms.

The Senate Education Committee has approved a Democratic-sponsored bill, S-1221which requires that feminine hygiene products, including tampons and sanitary napkins, be provided in all bathrooms in schools serving students in grades 6-12.

Doherty moved the amendment in committee but it was tabled by the Democratic majority.
