California bill would require hotels to ban guests accused of harassment

Monday, January 8, 2018

Two California state assemblymen have proposed a bill that would require hotels to equip housekeepers with portable "panic buttons" they can press when threatened.

Al Muratsuchi (D-Torrance) and Bill Quirk (D-Hayward) co-authored the bill, which is the first of its kind to be proposed on a statewide basis. Similar initiatives have been approved in Seattle and and Chicago.
