Boehner to Create Ladies' Room off House Floor

Wednesday, 01 Dec 2010 06:49 PM

WASHINGTON (AP) — Call it congressional potty parity.

House Speaker-to-be John Boehner is planning to install the first-ever women's restroom next to the floor of the House of Representatives.

Boehner's office says he'll direct the Architect of the Capitol to convert an office into a ladies' room just steps away from where lawmakers cast votes and debate legislation. It mirrors the space occupied by a men's restroom on the other side of the House chamber.

Female members of the House have long complained that while their male colleagues can duck in and out of a men's room right next to the chamber, their closest restroom is much farther away.
