Paid leave bill dies at Colorado Legislature

April 30, 2015

The measure could have resulted in a statewide leave insurance pool, paid for through paycheck deductions and available to every worker. But it failed on a 33-31 vote Thursday morning.

Two Democrats joined all of the House’s Republicans in opposition.
