The result was a bit different on the subject of paid sick leave in Annapolis this week. The Maryland Senate passed a slightly different version of paid sick leave than the House had already passed, but the House of Delegates quickly amended theirs so as to get a bill to the Governor before their session ends. Governor Larry Hogan had filed a completely different bill providing tax credits for small businesses to grant paid leave to their employees, but his bill never advanced out of committee. The Governor has promised that he would veto any paid leave mandate other than the one he filed, so he will now get his chance to do so. Notwithstanding, the bill passed both branches with enough votes to override any veto by Hogan and make Maryland the eighth state in the union to mandate paid leave on private employers.
