Child’s Right to Nurse

Delegate Fleischauer was a sponsor of HB 4335, a 2014 bill that banned discrimination against mothers who nurse their babies in public places. The Senate passed this bill without difficulty in 2013 and 2014, but it hit several snags in the House. She helped craft amendments that led to the eventual passage of HB 4335.  Serving on the two major committees to which the bill was assigned, Health and Human Resources and Judiciary, Delegate Fleischauer helped shepherd the bill so that West Virginia could become the 45th state to ban such discrimination.
