Legislative Advocacy

HB 0922: Provides that a school district shall make feminine hygiene products available, at no cost to students, in each bathroom of every school building

Bill Summary: Feminine hygiene products are a health care necessity and not an item that can be foregone or substituted easily. Access to feminine hygiene products is a serious and ongoing need in this State. When students do not have access to affordable feminine hygiene products, they may miss multiple days of school every month. When students have access to quality feminine hygiene products, they are able to continue with their daily lives with minimal interruption.
