Recently Enacted Legislation: Increased Access to Lactation Rooms in New York City

Mayor Bill de Blasio increased access to lactation rooms in certain public spaces throughout New York City after signing a bill into law supported by the Sex and Law Committee. While the Committee’s recommendation to expand the legislation to include City public schools was not included in the final amendments, new reporting requirements will require the Department of Education to annually provide a report on its policies related to lactation room accessibility.
