House and Senate Republicans Offer Free Market Alternative to Big Government FML Program

HARTFORD – During hours-long debate on paid family and medical leave legislation, the Connecticut General Assembly Conservative Caucus proposed, on behalf of the entire Republican caucus, an alternative that would provide important medical leave coverage for families without burdening individual taxpayers with a mandatory new payroll tax.

Unfortunately, the measure was defeated on a mostly party-line vote of 84-61.

Instead, the Democrat plan for paid family and medical leave that passed the House mandates employers offer up to 12 weeks of paid leave to their employees with a maximum benefit of 60 times minimum wage, which is currently $606 per week. To fund the program, virtually all employees will be compelled to pay one-half of one per cent of their gross earnings into a new state-run fund, whether they intend to ever take the leave or not. The payout is tied to federal benchmarks so the amount paid to employees taking leave will increase automatically when those benchmarks rise.
