Rep. Metsa and Sen. Kent introduce Minn. Paid Family and Medical Leave Act

Rep. Jason Metsa (DFL – Virginia) and Sen. Susan Kent (DFL – Woodbury) have introduced the Minnesota Paid Family and Medical Leave Act of 2017. In proposing the legislation, the bill authors pointed to growing disparities for low-wage workers, an aging population increasingly dependent on care from family members, and a need to provide Minnesota families a sense of economic peace of mind following birth or the need to care for a loved one.
