Thanks to a new bill signed by United States President Barack Obama on October 7th, all male and female restrooms in government buildings must have baby-changing facilities.

Since it was proposed in April by Rep. David Cicilline (D-R.I.) in April, the bill received enthusiastic bipartisan support.

“Government needs to do more to ensure that public buildings are family-friendly. No mom or dad should ever have to worry about finding a safe, sanitary place to change their baby ― least of all in a federal building that’s paid for by taxpayers,” Cicilline stated on his website.

Even though the legislation is yet to extend to public restrooms, it is still a big step forward for parents of both genders.
