SB 205 – Expanding Feminine Hygiene Access in Schools

Last year, the General Assembly passed and Governor Carney signed House Bill 20, which required all public and charter schools which have students in grades 6-12 to provide free feminine hygiene products for the girls in the school. That bill passed unanimously.

So Senator Kyle Evans Gay is back with a bill, Senate Bill 205, that expands the availability of free feminine hygiene products to all public and charter schools that have grades 4 through 6.

With 1 out of 5 teenagers struggling to afford period products, this will increase access to these essential supplies for low-income students.
