Mandatory Paid Leave - Preserve the Veto

Last Updated on Sep 6, 2017 at 8:44am | Garrett County Economic Development

In order to sustain the governor's veto of HB 1 - Mandated Paid Leave - the Maryland Business Coalition is fighting back to ensure that the citizens of Maryland are educated with what the bill really means. The coalition has launched a website dedicated to presenting the true impact this bill will have on business and jobs in Maryland: www.savemdjobs.com. This website aims not only to educate, but also encourage the public's engagement in the legislative process by voicing their opposition to their elected officials throughout the months leading into next session.   
  
In the coming weeks, we will be providing additional statistics, talking points and strategy as we head into the 2018 Legislative Session and the Legislators' efforts to override the Governor's HB 1 veto. The Governor recognized that the bill, as written, is too broad reaching and will unnecessarily negatively impact small businesses in Maryland. He, therefore, vetoed HB 1 and has requested that the Legislature work with him on a compromise. We need your help to PRESERVE THE VETO and save Maryland jobs. Please visit the website and watch for additional info in the coming weeks.
