Following up on the call for it in his State of the Union address earlier this month, President Trump again pushed for paid family leave for all Americans with submission of his FY21 budget proposal to Congress. Trump has called for paid family leave in each of the past three years and has had senior White House adviser and first daughter Ivanka Trump take the lead on the issue throughout his tenure in the Oval Office. The administration’s FY21 budget request combines the renewed push for paid leave with a proposed 11% reduction in the Department of Labor spending plan. The Trump administration has cut proposed reductions in the budget for the Department of Labor each year. Despite bipartisan support for the notion of paid family leave for new parents, the plan, which doesn’t require new funding but rather would allow parents to borrow off future child tax credits, hasn’t gained any traction in Congress in the past nor is it likely to see any movement in this Presidential election year.
