HB 8 signingThis year, we made it easier and safer for expectant mothers to stay in the workforce and provide for their growing families before and after they give birth. Signed into law last week, House Bill 8 prohibits employers from discriminating against their pregnant employees and requires them to grant reasonable accommodations to work schedules and duties to keep women and their babies healthy.

I am proud of my colleague Sen. Toi Hutchinson for fighting for women's health care and economic rights.
