Help from Hillary
Senators Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-NY) and Christopher Dodd (D-CT) sponsored an amendment to a program that would extend job-protected unpaid family and medical leave for up to six months for the families of wounded military personnel. The Senate approved it a few days ago. Debra Ness of the National Partnership for Women & Families says, "This can make a real difference for military families under enormous stress." Ness points out: This would be the first ever expansion of the 14-year-old Family & Medical Leave Act. Ness is urging the House to approve a similar bill.
