Breastfeeding Bill Goes to Governor

The House on Monday night gave final approval and sent to the governor legislation that repeals a current state law barring the breastfeeding of a child more than a year old.
The House approved the bill, 94-0, under sponsorship of Rep. Harry Brooks, R-Knoxville, without any debate or discussion beyond Brooks’ brief description of the measure, SB083.
Advocates for the measure said Tennessee is one of just four states that set an age limit on breastfeeding, contending that doing so is inappropriate both for the well-being of children and as needless governmental intrusion.
