Ways and Means Passes Paid Family Leave

The Assembly Ways and Means Committee has passed 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.

Now it goes to the Assembly Rules Committee, and then to a vote by the full Assembly.

Send your Assemblymember a friendly reminder to pass paid family leave.

When will the General Assembly vote on it? Does it look like it will pass?

I'm happy to say that the bill passed the Assembly!
