Congresswoman Ashley Hinson (IA-01) released the following statement after the U.S. House of Representatives passed the bipartisan Pregnant Workers Fairness Act with her support.

“I was proud to support the Pregnant Workers Fairness Act today, legislation that helps expecting mothers remain healthy and on the job. When I was a morning news anchor, I worked up until the day I gave birth to each of my children. As a working mom, this issue is personal to me. I will continue to champion policies that support working women and help ensure they have the proper resources in the workplace to provide for their families.” 
Congresswoman Ashley Hinson
