Rep. Ashley Viola Gantt
The Florida Legislature approved a measure to require Florida courthouses to have dedicated lactation spaces, long a priority of the Florida Association for Women Lawyers.
The Senate voted 39-0 on March 15 to approve SB 144 by Sen. Lori Berman, D-Boynton Beach, and House followed suit March 31 by a vote of 112-0. Freshman Rep. Ashley Viola Gantt, D-Miami, shepherded the bill through the House. Both Gantt and Berman are members of The Florida Bar.
