By a 4-1 vote, the Senate Committee on Economic Development on Monday approved a paid family leave bill that would offer employees up to 12 weeks of leave with 70 percent of wages covered. The bill, H.196, faces a veto by Gov. Phil Scott, who said he doesn’t support paid family leave and opposes policies that raise taxes and fees.
