Senators Run Out of Time on Paid Parental Leave Bill for Public Employees

West Virginia MetroNews – Senators today decided they need more time to work out the details of a bill granting 12 weeks of paid parental leave. Read the full article.

The bill would have applied to public employees who have worked for at least 12 months, following the exhaustion of their sick and personal leave. Employees who have worked fewer than a year would be entitled to 12 weeks of unpaid leave under the same circumstances.

Senate Bill 607 was considered today by the Senate Government Organization. But it was also assigned to Senate Finance. Today represented a deadline to move bills out of committee, two weeks before the conclusion of the regular 60-day legislative session.
