84(R) - 2015
Relating to reasonable break times and facilities for school district educators expressing breast milk.
No significant fiscal implication to the State.
School districts that do not already accommodate employees expressing
breast milk may experience some administrative costs. Administrative
costs would vary depending on whether the facility already had a
suitable location for expressing breast milk. There could also be
administrative costs to school districts to accommodate reasonable
breaks each time an employee needed to express breast milk.
SB 1479 would require a school district to provide break time at appropriate
intervals for an educator to express breast milk for the educator's
child who is under one year of age and to provide a room or location in
close proximity to the educator's work area, other than a toilet stall
or restroom, with an electrical outlet and locking door for expressing
Vote Recommendation Notes
Because this bill adds no new mandates to private enterprise it would have no discernible connection to our
liberty principles, therefore we are neutral on SB 1479.
