Paving the way for All School Employees to have Paid Parental Leave
Sacramento, Calif Assembly Bill 2393, by Assemblymember Nora Campos (D-San Jose), passed the Assembly Floor today with bipartisan support. This bill will provide paid parental leave to all K-14 school employees, including classified employees and community college faculty.
Denying paid parental leave leads to several costly issues for the employee, the district, and the child. Just some of these issues are lower cognitive test scores and higher rates of behavioral problems on children. A lack of parental leave also tends to lead to a delay in childhood immunizations, increased financial hardship, and a higher chance of postpartum depression.
SACRAMENTO, Calif. –Assemblymember Nora Campos (D-San Jose), member of the Assembly Budget Sub Committee 5 on Public Safety released the following statement on the Governor’s May Revise Budget Proposal:
“I commend Governor Brown for thinking forward and attempting to construct a fiscally responsible budget that prepares the state for the next recession. While I'm encouraged to see the Governor putting a strong emphasis on addressing homelessness, I hope to see discussions furthered regarding affordable housing for the working families struggling to live in some of the most expensive areas of the state. Additionally, as the Assembly discusses its budget proposal, I look to prioritize investing into programs that increase safety for women and children.”
