California assemblywoman brings newborn to the legislature floor.


California state legislator Buffy Wicks was denied a request to vote by proxy after giving birth to her daughter on 26 July.

Assembly members at risk for Covid-19 were given the choice to vote remotely during the pandemic, but Ms Wicks was denied the option because maternity leave was deemed not to be a high-risk category.

Assembly Speaker Anthony Rendon, who denied the request, has apologised.
