The House Ways and Means Committee is holding a hearing on Jan. 27 on paid family and medical leave legislative proposals. H.R.1185, the FAMILY Act, is a key democratic proposal that will likely be considered. The FAMILY Act would create a federal paid family and medical leave social insurance program funded through a payroll tax. Bipartisan proposals such as Sens. Sinema (D-AZ) and Cassidy’s (R-LA) plan to allow new parents to tap into a larger share of their child tax credit may also be discussed during the hearing.
