Maryland Businesses Help Paid Sick Legislation Pass the Senate
Yesterday, the Maryland Senate followed the House of Delegates in passing paid sick leave legislation. The Senate voted 29-18 for the bill. The American Sustainable Business Council and its member the Chesapeake Sustainable Business Council offered testimony in support of the bill. The vote is significant, because the Senate would need 29 votes to override a veto from Gov. Larry Hogan, who promised to veto the bill in its current form. While the fight is far from over, this Senate vote brings paid sick days one step closer to the finish line businesses and families across the state.
