House Floor Amendment No. 1 Makes changes in the definition of "multiple-occupancy restroom". Removes language requiring that inclusive signage must not indicate any specific ability. Provides that specified all-gender multiple-occupancy restrooms must satisfy all accessibility requirements set forth by the Illinois Accessibility Code. Provides that when plumbing fixtures in a facility (rather than a person or entity) are required to meet female-to-male ratio requirements, each individual fixture (rather than toilet stall) in an all-gender multiple-occupancy restroom may be counted toward the required number of either female or male fixtures until the minimum requirement is met. Provides that if a fixture is counted towards the minimum required fixtures for females, that same fixture shall not also be counted towards the minimum required fixtures for males, and if a fixture is counted towards the minimum required fixtures for males, that same fixture shall not also be counted towards the minimum required fixtures for females.
