on Mar 16, 2015 in Central Texas News, Mother-Friendly Legislation, News, Texas

House Bill 232 Authored by Representative Farrar
Strengthening the Right to Breastfeed


HB 786 Authored by Representative Walle
Right to Express Breastmilk in the Workplace

will be heard in Committee March 17th.  The hearing starts at 11:30 but several bills will be heard and we are not sure in what order they will be discussed.  Please take time to at least stop by the capitol and “drop a card” in support of this breastfeeding legislation.  This can be done by signing in electronically on a tablet near the meeting room.  If you would like to testify in support of these bills you can also sign up to do that.  More information about this process can be found here

The hearing will be in E2.016

maps can be found here for the Capitol Extension.

If you are not able to make it to the capitol but you would still like to show your support please contact members on the Business and Industry Committee and ask them to support this legislation.

Please contact TXBC Legislative Chair, Krisdee Donmoyer if you have any questions.

    If you do come to the Capitol today to show your support, you do not have to find the committee hearing room. Simply ask one of the guards at the security checkpoint where the closest kiosk is to testify. You will select the business and industry committee and look for Farrar and Walle’s bill. Select “in favor” “not testifying. And then you’re done. Super simple.
