WASHINGTON, D.C. — U.S. Rep. David Cicilline's bill to require baby-changing stations in male and female restrooms of federal buildings across the country passed the U.S. House on Wednesday.

The bill he sponsored, known as the BABIES (Bathrooms Accessible for Babies in Every Situation) Act, requires every federal building accessible to the public to be equipped with at least one safe, sanitary baby-changing station on each floor within two years of becoming law.

The bill, cosponsored by 27 Democrats and one Republican, now goes to the Senate.
