State Senate OKs bills on transgender students, broken parking meters

July 8, 2013

SACRAMENTO — State lawmakers sent the governor measures Wednesday that would ban tickets for drivers who park at broken meters; allow transgender students to play on sports teams and use bathrooms consistent with their gender identity rather than their sex; and would bar the state from providing employment tax credits to sexually oriented businesses.

The Senate gave final legislative approval to a bill that would prohibit local governments from issuing parking tickets to motorists who park at broken meters for the period of time allowed when the meter is working.

Assemblyman Mike Gatto (D-Los Angeles) said he introduced the measure in response to media reports about widespread ticketing at nonfunctioning meters in Los Angeles.

“Taxpayers already pay for street maintenance, meter installation and meter upkeep,” Gatto said. “Local governments should take responsibility and keep parking meters in good working order, not squeeze a double penalty out of cash-strapped citizens

The Senate passed his bill, AB 61, on a 36-1 vote.
