MONTGOMERY, Ala. -- The Alabama House approved a bill Wednesday that would allow mothers to breastfeed babies in restaurants and other public places.
The House voted 84 to 10 for the bill that would allow a woman to breastfeed in any public location.
The sponsor, Representative Laura Hall of Huntsville says she was inspired to file the bill because a woman was asked to leave a museum because she was breastfeeding her child.
Hall says she believes most mothers are discreet when they feed their babies in public.
The bill now goes to the Senate.
