The law is also known as The Restroom Access Act and it "requires businesses to make employee bathrooms accessible to those with IBD, chronic medical conditions, and pregnancy..." In a state where the law has been passed, if you are still denied access to the restroom then you can call the police and file a complaint and they will be charged with a misdemeanor.
The law has been passed in Minnesota, Texas, Kentucky, Tennessee, Colorado, Ohio, Michigan, Washington, Oregon, Wisconsin, and Connecticut and is pending in several others. Similarly, The Foundation for Clinical Research in IBD has created a medical alert card that states:“The holder of this card has Crohn’s disease or ulcerative colitis. Colitis is painful and requires immediate access to a toilet facility. This patient cannot physically 'hold it.' Please make your restroom available.”
The passing of Ally's law and the creation of the medical alert card has made accessing the bathroom easier for those suffering from IBD, but we still face many challenges in cities that haven't passed the law and those that do not offer adequate bathroom. But hopefully, in the coming years legislation will continue to pass in favor of those with IBD and the bathroom's will become friendlier to those in need!
