The U.S. Senate unanimously agreed Wednesday to allow senators to bring babies under the age of one onto the Senate floor during votes.
The move came after Sen. Tammy Duckworth (D-Ill.) submitted a resolution this week that would allow her to vote on the Senate floor even while she is on an unofficial maternity leave. Senators must be present on the floor in order to cast votes, and cannot vote by proxy like they would on committees.
Earlier this month, the Illinois Democrat made history when she became the first sitting senator to give birth while in office.
