In a political science class, have to do a project & paper. Thought about getting a specific "it's ok to breastfeed" law on the books here in Kansas. I am wondering if it is anywhere near realistic to do this and where I would start. ( I probably wouldn't have to actually get it enacted, just talking about the experience would probably be enough). I am also wondering what a realistic time table would be to do this...would it be possible to get it enacted before May?
any info would be helpful.

I would put together a fact sheet of why breastfeeding is so great - a one or two pager of bullet points, a la LLL's top 100 reasons to breastfeed - focusing especially on the economics of it and how it is so great from a public health perspective. In other words, why would it save the state money to encourage breastfeeding?
I'm sure there are websites out there on the political process that might be helpful, too, but this might give you a starting point.
Sounds like a cool project!
