The actual law is:

In accordance to Maine State Law, LD 373, an employer must provide adequate unpaid break time each day (and/or allows the use of paid break time or meal time), for a mother to express breast milk for her nursing child for up to three (3) years following childbirth. An employer must make reasonable efforts to provide a clean and private location, other than a bathroom, for such purposes, and may not discriminate in any way against an employee who chooses to express breast milk in the workplace.
Wow - go Maine!!!
