VICTORY! Pregnant Workers Act Signed into Law!
Senate Bill 18, the Pregnant Workers Act, was signed into law by Gov. Bevin. This is a great leap forward for protecting breastfeeding, working mothers.
If you are interested in working on implementing this new law, please contact Doraine Bailey, KLIC Legislative Liaison, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
