Bills on breastfeeding, booze sales move through Legislature

CONCORD — While the state budget and casino gambling have sucked most of the oxygen out of this year's legislative session, a number of smaller, potentially influential bills are still making their way through the Legislature.
One bill would require employers to provide break time and a private place for breastfeeding mothers and exempt nursing mothers from jury duty. Others would give alcohol manufacturers the ability to sell their products on their premises or at farmers' markets, create new fines for highway violations or push a constitutional amendment giving taxpayers standing to sue the government.
Lawmakers have until June 25 to take final action on all legislation.
