Assembly Starts to Move on Paid Family Leave

Good news! The Assembly is taking up the Working Families Time to Care Act, which would give paid time off to parents of newborns (or newly adopted children) and adults who need time to care for ailing relatives.

The Assembly Labor Committee is scheduled to vote on the bill, A9245, in the next 24 hours, and the full Assembly is scheduled to vote on it afterward. If the bill is voted on as scheduled, we expect it to pass. But this is the final week of the state legislative session, and time is short. We need your help to make sure those votes happen as scheduled.

We're asking everyone to remind the Assembly that you're watching what happens with paid family leave.

Email a friendly reminder to the Assembly in support of paid family leave.
