Rep. Paul Amador (R-Coeur d'Alene) is a new father. So it makes some sense that he’s also the prime sponsor of a bill that would shield mothers from arrest or ticketing when they breastfeed their children in public. Amador first told Doug Nadvornick about his bill last summer, before his wife gave birth, and he recently wrote to tell Doug his bill will get a hearing Monday in Boise.
