Governor Jerry Brown signed a bill into law Monday that would require schools to treat students according to their gender identity rather than their physical gender.
Assembly Bill 1266 was written by Tom Ammiano (D) San Francisco. It grants transgender students access to previously gender-specific facilities, like bathrooms and locker rooms, and activities.
The bill was passed by lawmakers in July, and was sent to Brown’s desk earlier this month.
AB 1266 is among 21 bills the governor signed Monday.
