Jake Marcus shares the word that Bill 34 has moved out of the Pennsylvania Senate Judiciary Committee and will now go up for a vote before the full senate. The bill appears to have had an amendment attached, but there's no confirmation yet on what changes that might have made to the spirit or wording of the bill.

The bill was supported by all members of the committee except State Senator Jane Earll who helped torpedo the bill the last time it was introduced.

    Update: the amendment is fine. It reads as follows: The act of breastfeeding may not be considered:
    (1) Indecent exposure as defined in 18 Pa.C.S. § 3127(relating to indecent exposure).
    (2) OPEN LEWDNESS AS DEFINED IN 18 PA.C.S. § 5901(RELATING TO OPEN LEWDNESS).
    (3) Obscenity or sexual conduct as defined in 18 Pa.C.S. § 5903 (relating to obscene and other sexual materials and performances).
    (4) A nuisance as defined in 18 Pa.C.S. § 6504(relating to public nuisances).

    Are there any laws or rules about allowing or disallowing a woman to expressing milk or pump while at work? Can an employer tell the employee to use the restroom to pump? What if the company is headquartered in MD and the employee works in PA?
