You all know by now that Governor Hogan vetoed HB01 – Healthy Working Family Leave Act, and it is unlikely that a special session will be called during which an override vote could be scheduled. We encourage you to extend your thanks to the Governor for listening to your voice and having the courage to veto this onerous legislation. SHRM has made sending thanks easy to do.

Finally, when the Maryland General Assembly reconvenes on January 10, 2018, there will most likely be a call for an override vote of Governor Hogan’s veto of HB01 – Health Working Family Leave Act. As we get closer to January, there will be other recommended actions we can take to influence defeat of the veto override vote and make way for paid leave legislation that is more reasonable. We will keep you informed.
Thanks to those members who take the time to speak your voice!
