Dino Rossi on Civil Rights
The Bill clarifies that a mother breast feeding a child shall not be considered indecent exposure. The Bill, passed by the Legislature on March 8,2007, will conflict with Enrolled Committee Substitute for House Bill No. 2498, a Bill passed by the Legislature on March 10, 2007. Both Bills amend W.Va. Code 61-8-9; however, the amendments of Enrolled Committee Substitute for Senate Bill No. 148 are not reflected in Enrolled Committee Substitute for House Bill No. 2498.
Although I support the intent of Enrolled Committee Substitute for Senate Bill No. 148, the provisions of Enrolled Committee Substitute for House Bill No. 2498, having been passed after this Bill, would control, thereby making my approval of this Bill fruitless. For this reason, I must veto Enrolled Committee Substitute for Senate Bill 148. However, I would encourage the Legislature to promptly consider this measure again in the near future.
