A new law in the city of West Hollywood goes into effect today. The city ordinance requires all single-stall restrooms in businesses and public places to be gender-neutral. City officials say the regulation is designed to better serve members of transgender population and families with parents who have children of the opposite sex.

West Hollywood City Councilmember Abbe Land joined Take Two to explain more about how the law works and why it's needed.
