Vermont’s Congressman Peter Welch is sponsoring an amendment to increase the number of private breast-feeding stations on Capitol Hill from 12 to more than 40. Welch will push for breast-feeding stations made by Vermont’s Mamava. “Whether a Member of Congress, congressional staffer, or visitor, women in the U.S. Capitol Complex should have access to a clean, private place to breastfeed and care for their families,” said Congressman Welch. “Our amendment will ensure the Capitol and House office buildings are in compliance with family friendly standards. This long overdue action will position Congress to lead by example as employers across the country transform the workplace to support working mothers.”
