LANSING, Mich. (Michigan News Source) – A bill has been reintroduced in Lansing which would require a universally accessible adult changing table in most places with public restrooms.
It is named “Liam’s Law” and was inspired by an 8-year-old named Liam who has several rare conditions. Those rare conditions prevent him from being potty trained and he must wear diapers for the rest of his life.
Currently, the ability to find a changing table for anyone older than the age of three is rare.
In 2022, the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) began a grant program to help install more adult-sized changing tables.
