Entry Title Date

Congratulating Flonnie Anderson February 2, 2016

Introduction Of The Fairness For Breastfeeding Mothers Act Of 2016 February 2, 2016
Eleanor Norton, D-DC
"Mr. Speaker, today, I introduce the Fairness for Breastfeeding Mothers Act of 2016, a bill that would require buildings that are either federally owned or leased to provide designated private and hygienic lactation spaces for nursing mothers. For years, federal agencies such as the U.S. Department of Agriculture and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have encouraged breastfeeding—the benefits are so great that the Affordable Care Act amended federal law to require employers to provide a designated, non-bathroom space for returning employees to pump breastmilk for their newborns, ensuring that new mothers would be able to continue this essential practice even after returning to work. My bill would extend this requirement to include not just employees, but visitors and guests to federal facilities across the nation."
Restoring Americans’ Healthcare Freedom Reconciliation Act Of 2015— Veto Message From The President Of The United States February 2, 2016
Kevin McCarthy, R-CA
"Mr. Speaker, today the House is keeping its promise to the American people. We showed we can defund abortion providers like Planned Parenthood and increase funding for thousands of women health centers across the country, and we showed we can send a bill repealing ObamaCare to the President’s desk even when Democrats are trying to stop us."
