On March 22, the First Focus Campaign for Children submitted a letter to Congresswoman Rosa DeLauro and Senator Patty Murray to thank them for introducing the Healthy Families Act (H.R. 1516 / S. 636).

The Healthy Families Act would allow workers in businesses with 15 or more employees to earn paid sick days. In addition, it provides workers with the option to use paid leave for a variety of child health-related reasons.

This bill would make significant strides for America’s working families.
