Washington DC (KELO-AM)  South Dakota Republican Congresswoman Kristi Noem is co-sponsoring legislation called the MOM act to expand maternity leave for women in the military from 6 to 12 weeks.

It is bi-partisan legislation with both Republicans and Democrats on board. Noem says the MOM act will align military women to the same maternity guidelines covering otther federal employees.

Noem says that for working moms, going back to work after having a child is one of the most difficult days, but when they put on fatigues instead of buinsess suits and sometimes travel back to a military base overseas, that day can be even more difficult.
