ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - A new proposal would require all new public restrooms in New Mexico to have baby changing tables.

A bill sponsored by Democratic state Rep. Andres Romero of Albuquerque is scheduled to face its first test Tuesday in the House Consumer and Public Affairs Committee.

Under the proposal, hotel lobbies, restaurants, bars, movie theaters, and concert halls would be required to put baby changing tables in new men's and women's restrooms. A similar proposal failed in New Mexico two years ago.

In 2016, President Obama signed legislation requiring baby changing stations in both men's and women's restrooms in federal buildings that are open to the public.
