SB 502 - This act provides that the act of a mother breast-feeding a child or expressing breast milk in a public or private location where the mother and child are otherwise authorized to be shall not:
(1) Constitute sexual conduct or sexual contact as defined under criminal law; or
(2) Be considered an act of public indecency, indecent exposure, sexual conduct, lewd touching, or obscenity or any other similar term for purposes of state or municipal law.
A municipality shall not enact an ordinance prohibiting or restricting a mother from breast-feeding a child or expressing breast milk in a public or private location where the mother and child are otherwise authorized to be.
This act requires that the mother breast-feed or express milk "with discretion" rather than with as much discretion as possible.
This act adds a nursing mother to the list of persons entitled to be excused from jury service. Any nursing mother, upon her request, and with a completed written statement from her physician to the court certifying that she is a nursing mother shall be excused from service as a petit or grand juror.
This act is substantially similar to SB 87 (2013).
