HOUSE REPUBLICANS VOTE TO REMOVE MENSTURAL PRODUCTS FROM SCHOOL BATHROOMS

CONCORD, NEW HAMPSHIRE – Today, Republicans on the House Education committee voted to support HB 276 which would repeal a provision passed by Democrats last term to provide menstrual products in school bathrooms. House Education committee member, Rep. Sue Mullen (D- Bedford) released the following statement:

“The vote to remove menstrual products from school bathrooms is nothing more than a continued attack on indigent people with fewer resources. Providing menstrual products in school bathrooms is vitally important for children who need them throughout the school day. Lack of access to menstrual products negatively impacts a student’s self-esteem, self-identity, and attendance. Though one Republican member of the committee asserted that schools were also not required to provide toilet paper in the bathroom, another hygienic necessity, the need for menstrual products is not optional and it is the responsibility of government to ensure schools provide the necessary assistance for all students to succeed.”
