House votes on earned sick days. Join us in Annapolis!
Friday is a big day for the Healthy Working Families Act! The bill for earned sick days (HB 1/SB 230) will be up for a vote in the full House of Delegates and the Senate Finance Committee.
Join us in Annapolis on Friday to show legislators how much support there is for earned sick days!
Here’s the schedule:
8:30 am - 10:30 am: Sit in Senate Finance Committee room (11 Bladen St. Miller Office) with earned sick days stickers and shirts (no signs)
10:30 am - 11:00 am: Rally on Lawyers Mall (with signs)
11:00 am - through House session: The House session starts at 11 am. Follow us into the State House gallery to watch the HB 1 vote take place. We want to PACK the gallery with earned sick days supporters! (We will collect signs before. No signs are allowed in the State House.) The State House is at 100 State Circle.
Break after House vote is finished.
For those who are able to stay, the Senate Finance Committee will likely go BACK into session to debate amendments and vote on SB 230. If you are able, please stay to watch the SB 230 committee vote in the Senate Finance Committee after the Senate floor session. It will be sometime later in the afternoon (around 1 pm).
We look forward to seeing you tomorrow. The Healthy Working Families Act has the potential to get farther than it's ever gone before! Let's get it passed!
