It happened! Governor JB Pritzker signed legislation requiring every single-occupancy bathroom in public buildings in Illinois to be labeled gender neutral.

The Hill details -

Under Senate Bill 556, also dubbed the “The Equitable Restrooms Act,” all single-occupancy restrooms “in a place of public accommodation or public building shall be identified as all-gender and designated for use by no more than one person at a time or for family or assisted use,” the law states.

The Hill also explains -

Each single-occupancy restroom shall be outfitted with exterior signage that marks the single-occupancy restroom as a restroom and does not indicate any specific gender

The law will take effect starting Jan. 1.
