HB 1706 and 741 pass out of committee!

Great news Texas!  Both breastfeeding bills up for consideration in our Texas legislature have passed out of the Business and Industry Committee.  Now they need to be put on the calendar for consideration by the full house and senate respectively.  We still have a lot of work to do in moving these bills through.  Our legislative session is very short and if they don’t make it out of the Calendar Committee these important pieces of legislation will lie dormant for another 2 years.

Which bills are we talking about?

HB 1706 Strengthens the right to breastfeed in public

HB 741 Extends pumping protections for working mothers who are also public employees (including school districts)

What you can do:

Write letters to the Calendar Committee members asking them to add these bills to the house callendar quickly.  There are several examples of letters that you can make your own and send along to the calendar committee as well as your own representative here.
