Governor Rick Snyder is expected to sign a bill today giving women the right to breast-feed in public.

The "breastfeeding anti-discrimination act" was passed by the senate in December and cleared the House earlier this month.

Once the governor signs it in law, it means moms can feed their children in public facilities including businesses, and educational institutions.

The legislation also states women cannot be denied service from any facility because she is feeding her child.

Violators could face a fine.
