The legislature is dealing with many weighty topics this session — gun legislation and mental health reforms in the aftermath of Newtown, a projected budget deficit of $1 billion in the next fiscal year — but there’s still time to tackle other topics.
Like the importance of paper towels in public restrooms.
House Bill 6484 would mandate that every public restroom in Connecticut be equipped “with a device used for dispensing paper towels and the person, firm or corporation that owns or controls the restroom shall ensure that such device is kept stocked with paper towels at all reasonable times.”
Failure to comply with the requirement could result in a fine of up to $500.
The legislature’s public health committee is scheduled to hold a hearing on the measure on Friday at the legislative office building.
