Last Day of Session at Legislative Hall

At Legislative Hall for a long last day and evening of Session with daughter Cammie. What a whirlwind of a day and a landmark day for women. Governor Jack Markell signed a series of bills regarding pay equity and other women's issues. "Lilly Ledbetter, an Alabama woman whose fight for equal pay led to Congress passing a 2009 law that bears her name, was the featured guest at Thursday's bill signing ceremony. One new law makes it illegal for employers in Delaware to prohibit employees from talking about how much they are or their co-workers are paid. Another reinforces the right to workplace privacy regarding reproductive health care decisions, while a third prohibits employers from discriminating against workers based on their obligations as family caregivers. Markell also signed bills ensuring that sexual violence victims on college campuses are told of their rights and legal options, and that health care providers give patients information about post-partum depression" reported WDEL 101.7 FM.
