Republican Gov. Chris Sununu has presented his plan for paid family medical leave in cooperation with Vermont. Now it’s the Democrats’ turn.

On Tuesday, they’ll lay out their plan in the first public hearing on Senate Bill 1, co-sponsored by all 14 Democratic state senators and the chair of House Finance.

Lawmakers appeared close to passing paid family medical leave last year until Sununu voiced his opposition to any plan that required withholding premiums from paychecks. He sees that as just another form of income tax and was worried about the plan’s solvency.
