Yes

Yes
Q3: Optional additional statement:
When my son Brayden was born, I was a federal employee with access to paid leave. It meant the world to me to be able to be home with my family during that special and critical time. Things couldn’t have been more different when my daughter Bryn was born three years later. I know how important it is for both parents to have time at home with a new baby. I can only imagine how difficult it is for families when no one is able to get the time off. It’s hard to stomach that 1 in 4 women are having to go back to work within two weeks of giving birth. That’s not right, and it doesn’t have to be this way. And it’s not just new families that need this proposal. A medical emergency could happen to anyone, pulling them out of work for an extended time. Our aging population will increasingly be needing support from family in the coming years. This proposal is good for everyone in Washington, and I am proud to support it.

Not for the government to impose. It sounds like a good idea but it should be up to the employer.
Q2: Will you prioritize passing family and medical leave insurance in 2017?
No. I have other priorities
Q3: Optional additional statement:
I think such insurance plans should be available to employees if they are willing to pay the premiums. But I’m for less government dictating to businesses what they should do. More government mandates can lead to fewer businesses or fewer employees.

Q1: Do you favor establishing a family and medical leave insurance program for Washington, funded through payroll premiums (estimated to total $3.00 per week for a typical worker)?
Yes. I supported the original legislation that created an account within Labor & Industries. I opposed subsequent legislation to eliminate the account since no source of money was identified to populate the account. I will support legislation for payroll premiums to fund family and medical leave insurance.
Q2: Will you prioritize passing family and medical leave insurance in 2017?
Yes
Q3: Optional additional statement:
The fair and ethical treatment of employees is good public policy and just good business. It’s good for our families, communities and our economy.
