Breast Feeding Bill

Breast-feeding bill unlikely to pass this year

Women would be able to breast feed their children in restaurants, stores and other public places under a bill being promoted by female legislators in Columbus. But the bill is unlikely to pass in the final days of the legislature's lame-duck session. State Representative Patricia Clancy of Cincinnati says she'll bring her bill back in January if both chambers do not pass it this year. The bill is inspired by a federal appeals court's ruling last summer. The court decided that Wal-Mart's refusal to allow women to breast feed in its stores does not violate an Ohio law that prohibits sex discrimination in public places.
