Democrats push Family Medical Leave

Democrats in the state legislature appear to be rallying around changes to the Family Medical Leave Law. In offering the Party’s Weekly Radio address, State Senator Janis Ringhand of Evansville says new legislation would allow workers up to 12-weeks off, if they become seriously ill or need to care for a sick family member.  Ringhand says expanding the Family Medical Leave Law to include the care of parents, siblings, grandparents, grand kids, and domestic partners makes sense and reflects the make-up of modern day families.
