Working Marylanders Need Time to Care

Last week the Maryland State Senate voted to support the Time to Care Act (SB275), which would create a statewide paid family and medical leave program for Maryland workers. We were able to get some important amendments added in, including language for small businesses, and now we need all hands on deck to pass this STRONGER paid leave bill out of the Senate TODAY! 

Some lawmakers in the House have been pushing a weaker bill (HB496) that would create a commission to study paid leave, but not an actual paid leave program. This would be the fourth study in 10 years. Marylanders don’t need another study — we need paid family & medical leave, and we need it this legislative session. 

We've set up this email tool to make it easy for supporters to write Senate President Bill Ferguson asking him to uphold his commitment to passing paid family and medical leave legislation this session. You're welcome to customize the email if you wish. When you click "add your voice", the email will be sent to the Senate President's inbox.
