Find your Representatives here (enter Zip at right):
http://www.capitol.state.tx.us/Home.aspx



and ask them to lend support to this bill:
Quote:
TEXAS
80(R)HB 1154 would provide that a mother is entitled to breastfeed her baby in any location that she is otherwise authorized to be, and that her right to be in a location may not be revoked for the sole reason that she begins to breastfeed. Moreover, a person may not interfere with the right to breastfeed in any place open to the general public, or any place owned/operated by an entity which pays taxes to the comptroller or which holds a license/permit issued by the comptroller. The bill also provides for warnings and fines to entities which violate the act.
(Editor's note: This bill is in response to various incidents in Texas, where mothers have been asked to leave public places because of breastfeeding, despite the current law providing that a mother is entitled to breastfeed her baby in any location in which the mother is authorized to be.)
