SB179 Gender Recognition Act

Section 1

SB179 Gender Recognition Act

Last fall, Governor Brown signed into law the Gender Recognition Act (California Senate Bill 179). The law streamlines the process for Californians to apply to change their gender markers and creates a nonbinary gender category (the letter “x” or “nb”) on California birth certificates, drivers’ licenses, identity cards, and gender-change court orders.
