In recent years, Illinois has made great progress in providing private, clean space for parents who need to pump breast milk while at work or in other spaces. One law requires lactation rooms in all Illinois airports.
Senate Bill 3503 fills in a gap – in our state courthouses. While current law addresses the need of those employed in a courthouse who need to pump breast milk at work, the law does not apply to nursing parents who spend long hours at the court – as an attorney, a juror or a witness.
Senate Bill 3503 ensures that no one is forced to choose between civic engagement and breastfeeding their baby.
