2014 House Bill 5681: Expand breast feeding nudity exemption to milk pump use
  1. Introduced by Rep. Eileen Kowall (R) on June 12, 2014, to revise the breastfeeding exemption in a law that defines and bans “public nudity,” so that the exemption also includes a woman exposing her breast for purposes of "expressing" breast milk, meaning taking milk from the breast with a pump or by hand for later use. This is part of a package consisting of House Bills 5678 to 5681 that amend different statutes that apply to different kinds of local governments.
    • Referred to the House Judiciary Committee on June 12, 2014.
      • Reported in the House on September 11, 2014, with the recommendation that the bill be referred to the Committee on Local Government.
