Rules change in U.S. Senate facilitates parental roles
A new reform cancels the ban on children's entrance into the Senate as, according to the new rule, newborn babies will be allowed to enter the Senate floor.
The revolutionary reform came followed a request from the first sitting U.S. senator to give birth during her term. Sen. Tammy Duckworth (D-IL) gave birth to her daughter last month.
With this change, she and future senators will be able to take care of their official duties as senators alongside their parental responsibilities of being parents.
"I'm glad we were able to get this done to address the needs of parents in the Senate," Sen. Roy Blunt (R-MO) said. "I congratulate Sen. Duckworth and her family."
No particular dress codes have been set for the children attending Senate proceedings.
"The baby will be able to wear whatever the baby wants to wear," Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) said.
