Babies now allowed on Senate floor after rare rule change

n a rare move, the Senate on Wednesday night voted to change longstanding rules to allow newborns — for the first time — onto the Senate floor during votes.

The rule change, voted through by unanimous consent, was done to accommodate senators with newborn babies, allowing them now to be able to bring a child under 1 year old onto the Senate floor and breastfeed them during votes.
