Their actions could not more clearly speak to their outlook on business in general, but two governors went in different directions this week over leave legislation put before them. As we speculated last week, Maryland Governor Larry Hogan made good on an earlier promise to veto a family leave bill that didn’t meet his requirements. Hogan vetoed the legislature’s version of family leave on Friday, the final day when he could still take action on the bill. Likewise, Minnesota Governor Mark Drayton made good on his veto promise as well this week. Drayton had warned the Minnesota legislature that he would veto their bill seeking to preempt cities and town within Minnesota from enacting their own local version of paid leave or minimum wage policies. Maine Governor Paul LePage didn’t have to worry at all about vetoing paid sick leave mandates in his state as the initiative failed to pass muster in the state senate. LD 1159, “An Act To Support Healthy Workplaces and Healthy Families by Providing Paid Sick Leave to Certain Employees”, which mandated one hour paid leave for every 30 hours worked was rejected by the full senate on a 20-15 vote. And lastly on the paid family leave front, the President of the Massachusetts Senate has publicly suggested that if a pending proposal is not enacted by the legislature and signed by the Governor, the issue will go before and be approved by the voters. Legislation creating an insurance program funded at least in part by employers to pay employees on sick leave will be heard in the legislature on June 13.
