Great News For Parents!

Good news: my bipartisan bill to expand parental leave eligibility for fathers and adoptive parents serving in the drilling Reserve and National Guard just passed the U.S. House Armed Services Committee.

Great News For Parents!

The Reserve Component Parental Leave Parity Act passed as part of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA).
