Chicago Ordinance Would Require Breast-Feeding Rooms At Airports.

CHICAGO (AP) — City Council members recommended Friday that lactation rooms be placed in every terminal at Chicago’s two major airports, a move that one alderman said could help make it the nation’s “most breast-feeding friendly” city. The vote by the council’s finance committee came after Chicago Aviation Commissioner Ginger Evans promised to install three lactation rooms at O’Hare International Airport by the end of the year, regardless of whether the ordinance passes. During the council meeting Friday, Duckworth, several aldermen and doctors voiced their support for the rooms, arguing breast-feeding is medically beneficial for mothers and infants.
