Paid Family Medical Leave Bill Is Signed

June 27, 2019

Though the 2019 legislative session is complete, I am continuing to work on your behalf.

This summer, I'll keep you updated on what's going on around Hartford and Windsor, and draw your attention to important programs and initiatives that may benefit you and your family.

First, Capitol news. I'm proud to announce that the nation's most generous Paid Family and Medical Leave law was signed into place earlier this week by Governor Lamont!

Connecticut joined New York, New Jersey, Rhode Island, Massachusetts, California and DC in making Paid Family Leave available.

This program will allow workers in the state to gain access to important benefits, allowing them to take off work to tend to their own health, a newborn child, or the health of a sick family member.
