U.S. Senate May Allow Babies After Illinois’ Duckworth Delivers Daughter
(Washington, DC) — The U.S. senate may soon have the Duckworth rule. The nation’s upper chamber is considering a rule change to allow babies on the floor after Illinois’ junior U.S. Senator Tammy Duckworth delivered her second daughter earlier this month. Senators are required to be on the floor to vote, and Duckworth says there may be times when she has to both be a mom and cast a vote. Senate leaders want to be accommodating, but some Senators aren’t so sure about allowing children on the floor on Capitol Hill.
