DeLauro and Morella: 20 Years, 100 Million Families Helped

Twenty years after the FMLA became law, it’s time to help realize the vision of a family-friendly America by addressing those gaps. That means expanding the FMLA to let more workers take leave for more reasons, and it means adopting a paid-leave insurance program.

One of us fought in Congress for many years to pass the FMLA. The other is still in Congress now, fighting to expand it. We are from two different states, two different political parties. But we both know that the FMLA has been a huge success — the first step on the road to a family-friendly nation. And we are both convinced that it’s time to take the next step. The country deserves nothing less.

Rep. Rosa DeLauro, a Democrat, has represented Connecticut’s 3rd District since 1991. Former Rep. Constance A. Morella, a Republican, represented Maryland’s 8th District for 16 years.
