Girl Scouts Period Equity Act by Majority Leader Reyes Receives Unanimous Support, Passing out of Assembly Education Committee
(SACRAMENTO)— The Girl Scouts Period Equity Act, AB 230, passed out of the State Assembly Education Committee today, receiving unanimous support from the committee. Inland Empire Girl Scouts from Troop 76 proposed the bill to Assembly Majority Leader Eloise Gómez Reyes earlier this year. Reyes’s legislation expands on the Menstrual Equity for All Act of 2021 (Garcia), which created a requirement for public schools serving grades 6 through 12 to provide free menstrual products. AB 230 would also make these products available to public school students in grades 3 through 5.
