Conn. Lawmaker Hooked on Bathroom Proposal
BRIDGEPORT, Conn. (AP) _ Restaurants, gas stations, stores and other businesses in one Connecticut city may soon face another regulation _ coat hooks in all public bathrooms.
The City Council Ordinance Committee has endorsed a proposal from City Councilman Keith Rodgerson to create a local law requiring coat hooks. Rodgerson has said no one should have to leave belongings on a public bathroom floor because there is no coat hook.
The City Council is scheduled to hold a public hearing on the proposal Monday before deciding on whether to amend the city’s health code to include the proposal.
