President Vetoes FMLA Expansion

John GarnerLegislative Updates, Resources

On December 28, 2007, President Bush vetoed the National Defense Authorization Act, which would have amended the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) to allow employees to use leave in certain circumstances when their spouse, child or parent is called for active duty in the military. The FMLA expansion provisions were not the reason for the veto of this much broader bill so it is reasonable to expect that these provisions will be attached to another bill that the President will sign in 2008. DMEC will keep you informed.
