Governor Chris Sununu, Senator Jeb Bradley Testify in Support of SB 730

Concord, NH – Today, Governor Chris Sununu and Senator Jeb Bradley testified in support of SB 730, establishing the Granite State paid family leave plan – the only shot at delivering viable voluntary paid family leave for New Hampshire families.

"I support paid leave and this bill is the only viable way to get it done," said Governor Chris Sununu. "Make no mistake – the people of New Hampshire will never support an income tax. I urge all Democrats on this committee to join me in opposing an income tax by delivering this voluntary paid family leave program for New Hampshire families."

"It is critical that any paid family leave program we pass is both voluntary and does not include an income tax," said Senator Jeb Bradley (R-Wolfeboro). "This legislation will provide families with the financial relief to care for a loved one while protecting taxpayers at the same time. I commend Governor Sununu for being a leader on this issue and working to find a compromise solution for the people of New Hampshire."
