On February 28, the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee approved, by voice vote, H.R. 1174, the Fairness for Breast Feeding Mothers Act of 2017. The legislation, sponsored by Del. Eleanor Holmes Norton (D-DC), would expand access to public lactation rooms shielded from public view and free from intrusion in federal buildings.
