Statehouse Video: Paid family leave bill advances

By a 4-1 vote, the Senate Committee on Economic Development on Monday approved a paid family leave bill that would offer employees up to 12 weeks of leave with 70 percent of wages covered. The bill, H.196, faces a veto by Gov. Phil Scott, who said he doesn’t support paid family leave and opposes policies that raise taxes and fees.

Watch video of the committee hearings held April 10-11 at the Vermont Statehouse.

  1. Most of the small businesses in Vermont can not afford this. Most of the businesses that come to mind the owners work the business and can not afford this benefit. I guess they want us all to close up lose everything we have and move! Utopia for the socialists … lets see who they get to foot the bill.

  2. Another round of great legislation from our bleeding heart liberals. The Senate Committee on Economic Development approved a paid family leave bill that would offer employees up to 12 weeks of leave with 70 percent of wages covered. Are you kidding, 12 weeks!

    I hope every business tells these fools what they think, hopefully the Governor with veto this boondoggle legislation.

    They’ll be breeding like rabbits to get 12 weeks.

    • I doubt if anyone thinks about what the repercussions might be down the road.
