LANSING, Mich. (June 24, 2014) — Gov. Rick Snyder Tuesday signed legislation that protects women who breastfeed their babies in public from discrimination.

The Breastfeeding Anti-Discrimination Act allows women to file a civil action against businesses that ask them to leave because they are breastfeeding, according to the Kent County Health Department, which supports the legislation.

The legislation also prevents women who nurse their infants in public from being charged with indecent exposure or obscene conduct.
