California's Transgender Law AB 1266



One of the most controversial laws in California and perhaps, the nation in 2014, is AB 1266.

More commonly known as California's Transgender or Bathrooom Law, it amends section 221.5 of the California Educational Code. Below we've posted the text of Assembly Bill 1266 which was approved by Governor Brown on August 12, 2013.

Assembly Bill No. 1266
CHAPTER 85

An act to amend Section 221.5 of the Education Code, relating to pupil rights.

[ Approved by Governor  August 12, 2013. Filed with Secretary of State  August 12, 2013. ]

LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST

AB 1266, Ammiano. Pupil rights: sex-segregated school programs and activities.
Existing law prohibits public schools from discriminating on the basis of specified characteristics, including gender, gender identity, and gender expression, and specifies various statements of legislative intent and the policies of the state in that regard. Existing law requires that participation in a particular physical education activity or sport, if required of pupils of one sex, be available to pupils of each sex.

This bill would require that a pupil be permitted to participate in sex-segregated school programs and activities, including athletic teams and competitions, and use facilities consistent with his or her gender identity, irrespective of the gender listed on the pupil's records.
