Family Leave Insurance Bill Rises Again

22

This just in from our Washington Bureau…..Congresswoman Lynn Woolsey of California intends to introduce her paid family leave bill, called the FIRST Act, in a few days. The bill provides grants to states who implement a paid family leave insurance program. Maybe this time the bill won’t land on the marble floor of Congress with a loud “thunk!”. We’ve never had such a pro-family Administration before, and President Obama has already indicated a favorable view of the issues involved. Watch this space!
