Thank you for contacting me with your opinion on H.R. 1174, the Fairness for Breastfeeding Mothers Act of 2017. I appreciate you taking the time to share your views and comments with me.

Introduced by Representative Eleanor Holmes Norton (D-DC) on February 16, 2017, H.R.I 174 requires that public buildings provide a private and hygienic room, other than a bathroom, for mothers to feed their children. I cosponsored this legislation and joined my colleagues on both sides of the aisle to pass it through the House on March 7, 2017. It now awaits consideration by the U.S. Senate.

Thank you again for contacting me. It is a privilege to serve you in the Tenth District. I may also be contacted at my Sterling office at 703-404-6903, or my Washington, D.C. office at 202-225-5136.
