Electrical Wiring in the Home/Bathroom and bedroom on same circuit


Background:  Live in Utah, I have GFCI in bathroom on separate circuit (20 amp). This GFCI does not feed anything else, just one plug.   
Bathroom has Vanity light (3 bulbs), Fan/light combo overhead.
Question:  What does code say about pulling line off of  20 amp same circuit that feeds the Bathroom (vanity light, fan/light) to feed BEDROOM lights and outlets in one room.
Again this is two separate circuits.


You can tie off the lighting circuit, but not the outlet. Of course, if the circuit has a lot on it, it may not be practical.  For the bathroom outlet, you can either have another bathroom outlet on it, or just the lighting and fan from that bathroom. Not both, and not anything else.
