Earlier that year, June authored the original House bill that eventually passed, protecting families for paid leave.

Investing in the Community

This means protecting our environment and creating more parks and open space for families to enjoy. It also means working to support the social safety net that struggling families rely on to help them recover when they lose a job or endure some other hardship.
