The Legislative Assembly finds that:
(1) Women with infants and toddlers are the fastest growing sector of today’s labor force, with at least 50 percent of pregnant women who are employed returning to work by the time their children are three months old.
(2) The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that every child be breast-fed for at least the first 12 months of life and urges that arrangements be made for expressing breast milk if the mother and child are separated.
(3) Women who wish to continue breast-feeding after returning to work have relatively simple needs. These needs include a clean, convenient, private location to express milk at the work site and adequate break time in which to do so.
