Paid Family Leave Passes the Assembly

The Assembly has just passed the Working Families Time to Care Act, which will give paid time off to parents of newborns (or newly adopted children) and adults who need time to care for ailing relatives.

Now it's up to the Senate to decide whether New Yorkers will have paid family leave. While they've gone home for now, the Senate has committed to reconvene later this year, at which point they can pass the bill.

Thanks to everyone for all the hard work to get this far!
