SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - Utah lawmakers have passed a bill that requires businesses to make accommodations for breast-feeding and pregnant employees.

The Deseret News reports (https://bit.ly/1UwOTLL ) that the bill, sponsored by Sen. Todd Weiler, a Woods Cross Republican, calls for employers of 15 or more people to provide “reasonable accommodations” for workers in connection to pregnancy, childbirth and breast-feeding.

The bill comes after lawmakers last year made it illegal to discriminate against pregnant and breast-feeding women at work.

The new bill does not require businesses to allow employees to bring their children to work to feed.
