A00290 Memo:

NEW YORK STATE ASSEMBLY
MEMORANDUM IN SUPPORT OF LEGISLATION
submitted in accordance with Assembly Rule III, Sec 1(f)
 
BILL NUMBER: A290
 
SPONSOR: Rosenthal L
  TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the public health law, in relation to providing feminine hygiene products in charter schools   PURPOSE: This bill requires feminine hygiene products to be offered for free in charter schools.   SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS: Section one adds a new section 267 to the public health law. Section two establishes the effective date.   JUSTIFICATION: The 2018-19 New York State budget included a provision requiring that all public schools provide feminine hygiene products free of charge in public schools, for students in grades 6-12. This was a groundbreaking step, showing New York State recognizes that menstruation should never bar a student from academic or extracurricular opportunities. Unfortu- nately, this budget provision did not extend to charter schools. Every of-age student in New York State must have free access to feminine hygiene products. This legislation adds charter schools to the requirement that elementary and secondary public schools serving grades six through twelve shall provide feminine hygiene products in the restrooms of their school building free of charge. It is critical that menstruation, a natural biological function, does not serve as a barrier to opportunity for any students of menstruating age in New York State.   LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: 2017-18: A.10601 - Reported to Ways and Means   FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: Undetermined.   EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect July 1, 2019.
