“It’s absolutely nuts that nobody could tell us in committee today if the proposed bill applies only to girls’ bathrooms,” said Doherty (R-23). “It would be completely and utterly ridiculous to force New Jersey schools to make tampons and sanitary napkins available in boys’ bathrooms. It would be an immense waste of money and is almost certain to lead to vandalism that could be quite costly to repair. The sponsors should accept reasonable amendments to make clear that the legislation applies to girls’ rooms only.”

The Senate Education Committee approved a bill sponsored by Democrats, S-1221, that requires feminine hygiene products, including tampons and sanitary napkins, to be provided in all school bathrooms for schools serving students in grades six through 12.

Doherty proposed the amendment during committee but it was tabled by the Democrat majority.
