Breastfeeding: Senator Rob Schaaf Proposes Bill To Protect Moms, Nursing In Public

Categories: Politics

Additionally, the act adds a nursing mother to the list of people entitled to be excused from jury duty, such that any breast-feeding mother, upon her request -- and with a written physician statement to the court -- would be excused.

Schaaf says that he originally began looking into this bill for this purpose -- but quickly realized that there were other breast-feeding hassles worth tackling in a more comprehensive bill.

Schaaf says he's hopeful there won't be a lot of opposition.

"It encourages good behavior," he says. "It's just kind of common sense."

Here's the full bill.

Senate Bill 87
