Democratic Senate President Donna Soucy signed a bill establishing paid family and medical leave insurance on Wednesday.

Republican Gov. Chris Sununu indicated he will veto it. In a Twitter message, Sununu said: “SB 1 is an income tax and I stand with the people of New Hampshire in opposing this bill.”

Senate Bill 1, a priority issue for Democrats, would allow employees up to 12 weeks leave from work at 60 percent of pay to care for a new or adopted baby, care for a sick family member or their own illness.
