A pair of state Senators has announced plans to introduce a bill for a state program that would provide paid family leave for workers. A cosponsor memo released last week by Republican Senator Devlin Robinson and Montgomery County Democratic Senator Maria Collett says all workers would contribute to support the program and it would be administered by the Department of Labor and Industry. Eligible employees would be able to care for themselves in the event of a serious health condition, or care for a close family member or a new child. It would also allow paid family leave to care for family military members in certain circumstances. The legislation is similar to House Bill 181 that was approved by the House Labor and Industry Committee in June. That bill is currently in the House Rules Committee.
