Last year Governor Phil Scott vetoed a paid family leave bill. This year, Scott and New Hampshire Governor Chris Sununu have unveiled a voluntary plan that would involve state employees from both states. The Legislature has also made the issue a priority for this term.
Department of Financial Regulation Commissioner Mike Pieciak discusses the Scott-Sununu proposal. And Middlebury Representative Robin Scheu presents the details of the alternate bill that the House will consider. We'll hear the details of who will be included in each plan, whether the plans would be mandatory or voluntary and how they will be administered.
