      The introduction of the bill is on June 11. A companion bill will be
      introduced in the Senate. As soon as the bill receives a number, the US
      Breastfeeding Committee will have a mechanism on its website to send a
      letter to your legislators requesting them to sign on to the bill.
      Writing before there is a bill number is ineffective.

      Is there a schedule of events for tomorrow? Can you post the
      information as to where/when to meet for the nurse-in?
      Thanks,
      Jen
