Any family can tell you just how important paid family leave is. I was serving in the Legislature when paid leave passed both the House and Senate. However, regrettably, the bill was vetoed by the Governor.
As with most controversial bills, the bill was supported by many, went too far for some and not far enough for others. As your Lieutenant Governor I would use my experience to support any effort to bring relief to working families - wether that means another attempt at passing paid leave or something new. I am further hoping for a provision to be included and passed at the federal level and I am grateful for the hard work of our federal delegation to do just that.
