Paid sick leave advances in Md. House of Delegates

Maryland’s House of Delegates on Wednesday gave preliminary approval to a bill that would require businesses with 15 or more workers to provide paid sick leave.

The measure, which the House passed in 2016, faces an additional vote in that chamber before being taken up in the Senate, where a similar measure failed last year. The legislation is sponsored by Del. Luke H.
