Proposed bill is already in effect.

A Hawaii House committee is considering giving breastfeeding moms a "Get Out of Jury Duty" pass. Here's the full description of that proposed bill:

"Exempts breastfeeding mothers from jury duty for up to one year from the time the mother began breastfeeding the child."[1]

Whoever proposed that bill must have not done their research, because caregivers can currently request to be excused from jury duty:

"You may be excused if you have caregiving responsibilities and there is no one who can take your place," the official Hawaii State Judiciary website informed.[2]

Since no one can take a mothers place to breastfeed their child, they're already excused from jury duty...
