A California bill passed Wednesday, Aug. 20, would let the state’s birth certificates to more accurately reflect parents of same sex.

“This bill seems subtle but I think it’s going to make a profound impact on how people view each other,” the bill’s author Jimmy Gomez, the Democratic Assemblyman of Los Angeles, said, RushHourDaily reported.

The bill, which passed by legislature and now at Democratic Governor Jerry Brown’s hand, would give parents the option to choose themselves as father, mother or parent on a birth certificate. Supporters of the bill said the change would recognize more the growth of civil rights and acceptance of same-sex marriage.

Gomez said California birth certificates already allow parents to identify themselves as Mother/Parent and Father/Parent, but the new bill would change the choices to mother, father or simply parent. The changes is expected to be in place in 2016.

“It’s a recognition that families come in different compositions now,” Gomez said.
