The US Senate Finance Committee will discuss proposed legislative changes to FMLA tomorrow. Led by Sen. Bill Cassidy (R-LA), the members will discuss proposed changes, including the Democratic bill, which provides for an additional employer payroll tax to fund 12-weeks of paid leave for new parents and the Republican version, which permits parents to borrow from Social Security when a child is born to fund leave. The hearing has a lot of public policy interest, as family leave is said to be a priority of Ivanka Trump as well as other prominent members of the Trump Administration. #socialsecurity  #legislation
