Texas State Representative Debbie Riddle is voting against House Bill 1706, that better defines the rights of women to pump at work and gives a back bone to the laws in place saying a woman has the right to breast feed where ever she and baby are otherwise legally allowed to be. Please, let your voices be heard on this matter, though the link below!
"Legislative Update - House Bill 1706 was brought before a House Committee today - it is about breast feeding. Now, I am all in favor of breast feeding - however it is important for women to be modest while feeding their baby - and most women are modest and respectful. But, a bill that would allow for law suits if one "interfered" with a woman breast feeding is really going a bit far. If a business owner objects to a woman who is not being modest then be fearful of a law suit is government out of control. Most of our laws and bills being considered for law would not be necessary if people would simply be considerate and thoughtful of others. Needless to say - I am not supporting this bill."
