OSBC member Jenelle Isaacson of Living Room Realtors in Portland published a letter to the editor of the Oregonian today about Senator Jeff Merkley’s provision for the Senate health care bill to require employers to provide reasonable break time and clean, private space for nursing mothers to express breast milk.

From the letter:

Like 72 percent of moms, I work full-time. I am writing in support of Sen. Jeff Merkley’s amendment to the final health care bill that provides for nursing mothers a reasonable break time to express milk at their place of employment (paid or unpaid) for one year after the birth of their child.
